We’ve all seen the Geico Gecko commercials. However, in real life Gecko’s are not quite so charismatic. They take some work to get their portrait! This gecko seen in Bermuda was a great model, (who has likely had some freelance experience modeling for tourists).
Don’t fret! You can get a great Gecko portrait too! Here’s how:
- Don’t worry about a gecko blinking while taking the photo. Most geckos don’t have eyelids and therefore never blink!
- Don’t pose your Gecko subject on anything made of Teflon. It’s the only known surface a gecko’s feet can’t stick to so your model will be sliding all over.
- Gecko’s are the only lizards that can vocalize! So don’t be afraid to talk to them while they strut their stuff, they can talk back!
- Try to choose a sunny location for your Gecko supermodel. They are cold–blooded and need the sun to stay warm!
