Full Answer

Geckos are lizards that make chirping sounds to interact and communicate with one another. There are more than 1,500 species of geckos. Most geckos do not have eyelids and instead lick their eyes to keep them moisturized. Geckos also use their tail for many different purposes such as to store fat, maintain balance and add camouflage to help them to blend in. As a last ditch escape effort, Geckos are capable of shedding their tails when grabbed by a predator.
