Scientific Name: Phelsuma madagascariensis Did You Know? New research on the action of the gripping toe pads of the geckos have illustrated how efficient the system of tiny kook-like hairs really is. It is estimated that in some species the combined grip of each toe could support the weight of up to 40kg. That is equivalent to a small teenage human! The day geckos are a group of stunningly beautiful lizards, many with bright green, red, blue or yellow markings. The giant day gecko is no exception. It is bright emerald green in colour with large dark eyes and patches of red on the lower back and sometimes also on the head. These are large lizards with males reaching almost 30cm in total length. While not particularly aggressive, if handled incorrectly they will attempt to bite and have very powerful jaws. The toes are broad and flattened and have an exceptional grip even on smooth surfaces such as glass.
