Geckos - Tails to Toepads

Explore the fascinating world of these enchanting creatures!

If you haven't had a chance to stop by and see Geckos – Tails to Toepads, hurry in! This exhibit closes September 7th!

Geckos have long been endowed with a charisma that marketing firms can't resist and audiences can't ignore. They are among the most adaptable lizards and more than 1,100 species have conquered habitats ranging from balmy tropical beaches and lush rainforests to frigid mountains and parched deserts.

Geckos – Tails to Toepads showcases the remarkable diversity of these animals utilizing bold backlighted graphics, engaging interactive displays and live Geckos from around the world. From nighttime hunters to neon-colored nectar eaters, you’ll experience the world of Geckos in lush, naturalistic habitats, complete with rock ledges, live plants and waterfalls.

Some 75 live Geckos representing more than 18 distinct species will be on display as part of our family friendly exhibit. Come listen to Gecko voices, learn about Gecko night vision, test your Gecko IQ, and try to spot camouflaged Geckos.

Geckos – Tails to Toepads presents cutting-edge science where young and old will be totally immersed in the sights, sounds and surroundings of this remarkable species with their bulging eyes, "sticky" toe pads and squawking voices.

Geckos – Tails to Toepads was created by Peeling Productions at Clyde Peeling’s REPTILAND.
