Don't be deceived...this youngster has a bite...and a bite that can draw blood
and he won't let go...will he Angi?


This is for you that contacted me over the past few day's...it's really meant a lot..

A Tokay Gecko from a macro day with Angi

Sorry not to be around too much, you will understand
but am trying to play catch up

Again I thank you all
you are such good friends

A very special animal in very special colours, no hiding for this one, sits out against the background and seems proud of his colours.

Helen beat me to it...I too thought he was sitting on a wooden copy of himself.
So, not as innocent as he appears...a bite to remember...I can see him saying, "What? Moi?"
