Return of the GIANT Geckos!!


A very happy day here at the Zoo...we have Giant Geckos again!!

The New Caledonian Giant Gecko (Rhacodactylus leachianus), AKA the "Leachie"....is from various islands off the coast of Australia. They greatly resemble the little crested gecko that you know and love, just SUPER-SIZED! Leachies need many of the same things as cresties, but can also eat small mammals and lizards as well. Just to put it in perspective for you, these guys can get over a foot long, making them the largest extant gecko in the world! They are very friendly...but the locals call them the "devil in the trees" for the growling noise they make. :-O

Mandy, Laura, and I dubbed them "Bubbles" and "Squishy" from Finding Nemo. So, everyone will have to come check them out because they are the coolest looking things EVER...especially after seeing little crested geckos for the longest time, haha. But if you are too far, of course we have some great pics for you...

Bubbles!



Squishy!



Their new home!!




Even Garrett's little girl Kira was completely wowed by them...


How adorable!!


See you soon!
