...because I once had a Tokay Gecko and I know for a fact that they have a little secret to the walking up glass trick. You see my Gecko would never come out in the day time, but one night under dim red light, I caught mine perilously clinging to the side of its glass terrarium. He was having a really hard time holding on and I soon saw why. He was chewing away furiously at something, I figured it was a cricket so I was flabbergasted when he started to blow a small pink bubble. The next thing I know, he is passing one foot after another threw a wad of pink gooey stuff in his mouth. The pink goop is adhering to his toe pads in tiny clumps and suddenly he is having no trouble at all hanging onto the glass. As I am watching awestruck, I twitch a little and he sees me. He scampers down to the bottom of the tank in a flash, grabs up something in his mouth and starts to swallow it as fast as he can. I flick on the lights really quick and am just in time to see the upper half of Joe Bazooka as he disappears into the Tokay's mouth. That little lizard gave one look of embarrassed shame and then begged me to promise not to tell a living soul for the rest of his life - or he would be dog meat in the land of lizards. Well he's been gone a few years now, so I guess it is ok to tell the tale - I mean I just canít believe the things those scientists would have us believe!
