The Tokay Gecko (Gekko gecko, Linnaeus, 1758) is a large arboreal lizard of the Gekkonidae family widespread in Southeast Asia. It is the second largest in the world; Rhacodactylus leachianus only surpasses in size.
The male is larger than the female. This is long from 15 to 25 cm, while the male measuring 20 to 33 cm. Sexual dimorphism is accentuated, in the mating season, from the garish colors of the male.
This animal is a voracious predator: hunting insects, larvae, molluscs, woodlice, reptiles (even of the same species), sometimes fish, small birds and rodents. The food is procured on the ground but sometimes also in the water. The prey are eaten whole.
The fingers have expanded the fingertips that, on the lower surface, have a number of lamellae with exceptional adhesive properties, that allow Tokay gecko to climb on a perfectly smooth surface. Like other species of lizards, Tokay gecko is able to deliberately lose the tail if it is attacked or grabbed by the tail, as a defense mechanism. The tail then grows back, albeit with a slightly different look, sometimes forked.
These geckos have the characteristic, unusual among lizards, to issue a variety of loud sounds. The vocals are also used as a booster for females and in courtship.
It has a large area which includes the rain forests of Indochina, southern China, the Philippines and Indonesia.
