35 Fantastic Pictures of Geckos

If you live in a warm climate, chances are that you’ve seen a gecko before. You might have even made gecko earrings or watched a gecko’s disembodied tail squirm on the floor. With their flat, tiny bodies and amazing ability to climb anything, geckos are fascinating creatures to watch and photograph.

Hi! Those gecko images are lovely, thanks for posting them.

I just wanted to point out that the 9th image is that of an anole lizard, not a green day gecko (I made that mistake myself in the past photographing geckos in Hawaii). You can see the difference from their toes. They are rounded for geckos, but anole lizards have nails. Their head is also more pointed.

If you like geckos, there are many more on my webpage at:

Good eye! I’ve now replaced the unfortunate lizard with the photo ‘Christmas in Hawaii’ from your excellent gecko collection. Thanks!

The “Gordon Gecko” is also not a gecko. Its a type of anole as well. Also, the “gecko in a cup” is severely emaciated and unhealthy looking and truly not a “beautiful” gecko picture. Otherwise great gallery.

Thanks for the heads up!

Aww these are all soo cool. I have 4 leopard geckos and I just love to take photos of them (www.shootingmyjourney.blogspot.co.uk/p/gecko-portfolio.html) but this has given me some great ideas for some great shots! Thanks for compiling and sharing x
