Geckos in Bali

Living in Bali means sharing your house with a whole range of nasties and that’s not just the in-laws. I’m kidding of course, but you will have uninvited house guests of a different type. One of the most noticeable are geckos, the small lizard-like creatures that scamper around on the walls, playing a game of chase with each other when not gobbling mosquitoes. Geckos are harmless to humans and seem to possess gravity defying powers.

A BBC article explains how these guys are able to run around on walls a ceilings without ever seeming to fall. Clever little buggers!

One night a hugh gecko was hangin out on my veranda wall while we were playing spades, and suddenly my cat took a flying leap and grabbed the poor thing and devoured him. I screamed bloody murder and all my balinese friends simply laughed histerically. Ahhh the memories of Bali
