Gordon The Gecko


Rhacodactylus cilatus is the official name for Crested Gecko Gordon who was a pet for seven years and has moved to the warm exotic animals building he shares with Skink Solomon (who is in his 20th year), Ball Python Lucy, and Hog Nose snake Flick

Geckos like Gordon are native to India, Pakistan and Afghanistan and are available in many pet stores. Geckos are nocturnal and. can make appealing chirping sounds. Like all reptiles geckos periodically shed their outer skin which they eat providing extended energy. It’s also thought that bits of lizard skin may scare off predators so being tidy has advantages. At the Zoo mealworms are gecko chow. Gordon Gecko will be an Outreach Animal
