And that is the most gorgeous gecko you have ever seen. [MUSIC PLAYING] Geckos are so cute. And they can be so tiny. Do you want to know how tiny? I'll tell you. The smallest gecko ever 1.6 centimeters. It's so tiny. Can you imagine? I can. Most species of geckos are nocturnal. And we know what that is, yeah? I shouldn't have to explain that to you. Geckos have a lens and each iris that expands in the darkness. And so their eyesight is over 350 times more sensitive to light than ours, 350 times. No wonder they're nocturnal. Geckos don't have eyelids. They have a little transparent membrane that's used over their eyes, which they keep clean by licking. They use their long ass tongue. And they're just like, wa-poo, geh, wa-poo. And it keeps it clean. So they can't blink. So, they're out the sunlight. Most gecko species can lose their tail. And it's called autotomy where if a predator pops them by the tail they can detach their tail. And the tail will keep wriggling to distract whatever predator was trying to get them. And they'll scamper away. Later, like way later, they'll come back around and be like, hey do you eat my tail. Because otherwise if you didn't I'm going to eat that. Because there's lots of valuable nutrients. And I need those. Can I have my tail? Thank you. Yeah, they're real fond of eating themselves. They shed their skin, especially they're around water sources they'll shed like every two to four weeks or whatever. Then they eat their skin. Because nutrients are important. Ew. The word gecko is an onomatopoeia for the sound that the geckos make when they're talking to each other, gecko, gecko. Ah, that's cute. We're back to cute things, you guys. I went to Florida not that long ago. And there was a bunch of kids that could catch them. And they were very good at it. So I got to hold some. Just so you guys know, we are still taking video submission for the community video of "Weird, Gross, Beautiful" on manatees. And if you want to learn more about that you can check out this video right here on swans to learn about all that stuff. But if you already know about it and you know that you want to participate follow the link in the description tool form. We're going to need that from you. So please be sure to check that out. And a big, big thank you to Flaszka for suggesting today's animal. I love you so much, my love. Mwa, mwa, mwa, mwa, mwa. And I love you guys. And I'll see you next time. Bye.
