Bogey, Sticky & Snot

Species: Standing’s Day Gecko (Phelsuma standingi)

Bogey, Sticky & Snot

Native species of southwest Madagascar, this is one of the largest day geckos and is able to reach a length of eleven inches (28cm). Strictly  an  arboreal  species,  they  have  specially  adapted  feet  for climbing.    They eat  a range  of  insects,  invertebrates  and  even small lizards  but  are  omnivorous  and  supplement  their  diet  with  soft  fruits and nectar. They can be very territorial and the members of the same sex  may  sometimes  fight  amongst  themselves,  which  is  rare  for geckos. They are named after Herbert F. Standing of Madagascar.
