ABSTRACT
Gecko, any of more than 400 species of small harmless lizards found in warm climates. The gecko's name is derived from the sound of the cry of one species. Geckos are most numerous in southeastern Asia, Africa, and Australia. The largest gecko is the tokay of Malaysia, 10 to 14 inches (25 to 36 cm) long. Two geckos, both about 4 inches (10 cm) long, are native to the southwestern United States�the banded gecko (brownish with yellow bands) and the leaffingered gecko.
