The Tokay Gecko (Gekko gecko) belongs to the order of Squamata. Its natural habitat is on cliffs and in Southeast Asian rain forests. Fully-grown it attains a length of about 35 cm. The nocturnal Tokay has its name from the male’s distinctive and often very loud cries. This sounds like „to-kay“ or „ge-cko“. Due to its lamellar structure on its fingers and toes the Tokay has, as many other Saurian’s, the ability to climb up trees, walls and even up window panes vertically. In Asia the okay is believed to be a lucky charm and a fertility symbol.
