It's amazing how they can just disappear - even from sleeping - instantly.

The temptation (I don't do it) to scare my cat all the time for entertainment is huge.


freelancefikr t1_j9p7t2d wrote

honestly there’s nothing more comforting than to look over at my cat when i hear something just to find him still sleeping soundly. he’s my security system


prfessorY t1_j9pvj7u wrote

And there's nothing less comforting that if I don't hear something, but my cat is on high alert.


Negran t1_j9pbc4j wrote

Ya. I wonder how many frames it would be visible in if this wasn't some shitty video or was slowed down. (Aka actual speed/reaction time).

We try to kick the cats out for bedtime, and I'm never 100% confident they didn't just randomly sneak back in right in front of my eyes. They will just appear.

Is that really the size of geckos I always assumed that they were much smaller


Arvandor t1_j9n0c53 wrote

Most geckos are pretty small. That is an outlier breed for sure


electro1ight t1_j9nwrba wrote

Yeah. Makes me think Australia.


DynamicSploosh t1_j9oaopw wrote

This species is found in northeast India, Bhutan, Nepal, and Bangladesh; throughout Southeast Asia, including Thailand, the Philippines, Malaysia and Indonesia; and toward western New Guinea. It’s also been spotted in parts of Northern Australia. It’s considered the second largest gecko species with the New Caledonian gecko being the largest with sizes as large as 36cm (14 inches)

Edit: I forgot to mention the name of this species. Its a Tokay Gecko.


GoProOnAYoYo t1_j9r9rhj wrote

What species is this? One about this big got into our bungalow once when we were visiting Thailand and I was blown away, had only ever seen lil geckos my whole life


SheriffBartholomew t1_j9rbcpd wrote

I'm pretty sure it's a Tokay Gecko. They're mean as hell and will bark at you with an undead demon voice.

pvballer t1_j9nc0h0 wrote

This is a Tokay gecko. Most geckos are much smaller. Tokays are one of the largest gecko species, known for their particularly nasty bites and defensive nature.

And yes they bark. Geckos are quite vocal.


drekia t1_j9pfwxs wrote

These guys are so elusive. I lived in the Philippines for 12 years and was always able to hear their squeaky little mating calls but never actually saw them.


ohhellopia t1_j9qn8h5 wrote

I used to go on vacations in a pretty rural area -- I'd live in a hut house with a tin roof while I'm there. On really hot days, the tin roof gets extremely hot and they'd let go from the ceiling, plopping down to the floor. Scared the crap out of me. I always slept with the mosquito netting over me, more for tokay falling off the roof protection than mosquitos.


AthenasChosen t1_j9qo0fr wrote

My grandpa said when he was serving in Vietnam, there was an animal that would say "Fuck you" in the jungle that you could hear all the time. It was the Tokay geckos lol.


likesexonlycheaper t1_j9qx9oq wrote

I dunno if they are the same but when I was visiting Bali there were geckos that always sounded like they were a kid saying "help me". It was pretty creepy in the middle of the night.

I always thought they were literally saying “geck-oh”! Or sometimes “weh-oh”

I don’t know man, but that sounds like an awesome deal to me. My sincerest hope is that I never lay eyes on one of these fuckers.


woodsciguy t1_j9qqj9j wrote

I had one for a pet. When i bought it at the reptile pet store the guy selling it said it was tge only thing in the srore that they guaranteed will bite you. It was a pain in the ass and constantly escaped. Beautiful though. Purple with orange spots. Fed it mice...


Soma2710 t1_j9qrvav wrote

Used to work in a pet store where we sold these.

You had to dunk it under water in order to release its jaws from your hands. I made the mistake once of cleaning their habitats without gloves.

They are indeed beautiful creatures, though!


pvballer t1_j9qv9iu wrote

I have one right now! He’s actually somewhat socialized where I’m not too scared of him biting but I am still very careful. I’m always scared of him getting out and then having to try to catch him however.

Their pattern and colors are super unique.


SheriffBartholomew t1_j9rbl2v wrote

I had one two separate times. They're probably the meanest pets I've ever had. Both times I ended up too traumatized by the constant attacks to keep caring for them and found them more tolerant caretakers.


Nihil_esque t1_j9oad8y wrote

Most geckos are small, these guys (Tokay geckos) are on the bigger side. They live in southeast Asia.

Right? I've taken a bite from a tokay and it is by far one of the worst bites I've personally taken from a reptile. They do not let go. Only gecko I take seriously when they bark.


wwhatthefuckrichard t1_j9n28e8 wrote

not me googling “do geckos bark” because i couldn’t tell if this was a play on words or you meant they literally bark.


angroro t1_j9n2l29 wrote

Geckos literally bark and scream. They're mouthy when they're in a mood. It's pretty cute when the little guys do it.


kittylkitty t1_j9nkmp8 wrote

FR! They only way I’ve managed to get them to let go is to hold it under water until it physically can’t hold its breath anymore, these assholes are abundant at my grandma’s farm.

TumTumMac24 t1_j9o7uiq wrote

I’ve paid attention to lots of cats and dogs and I really don’t believe they can smell lizards.

They can see them and know it’s something there alive but since they can’t smell them they get awfully close to see what it is.

I’m sure that’s how so many dogs get caught by gators too because they are confused about what they see versus what they smell.

I’m no scientist just an observation, maybe I’m wrong I’ve never even looked into it. Just always thought it was weird how they all act like they can’t smell them.


theonethatbeatu t1_j9osct7 wrote

Yeah I’ve noticed that too. I think it’s a reptile thing specifically. Maybe because they are cold blooded.


ZZBC t1_j9pv5co wrote

They absolutely can smell them. Some snakes are quite stinky. One of my dogs is fascinated by reptiles and will hunt and kill snakes, the other is grossed out by them and will sniff and then shake his head and recoil in disgust.

Everyone complaining about the time covered but no one talking about the cute little delicate placement of the paws on the garbage can to establish stability, the brief distraction of the fly, how absolutely lean and precision carved this adorable little lady is (and if not a lady, intersex at the very least as orange and black are mutually exclusive X chromosome characteristics). She's almost wearing a tortoiseshell tuxedo. I'll bet she's under 2 years old and very friendly.

Please send help, I'm horribly allergic to cats and can't pet them without wearing a face mask but I love them and need all of them.

Yup, and no fear. I worked at a pet store ages ago. Every lizard would scatter when you opened their lids. Not the Tokay. He would just open his mouth.

Looks like a tokay gekko. I had one as a pet and I wasn't as fast as the cat. I now own the dubious honour of being the first person at my local hospital in Scotland suffering from a lizard bite. My gekko almost removed all the skin from my knuckle, when I was feeling it.
