Bali and Sulawesi are Tokay Geckos. These charming little lizards can be found in Asia and some of the Pacific Islands. They get their names from two of the Indonesian islands they call home.
Tokays have amazing qualities. They can bark to defend their territory or call to a mate, they have fascinating feet that let them climb glass, and they can even change color. This type of lizard lives in the trees of the rainforest. Tokays are culturally significant in many Eastern countries, some traditions believe they have magical powers, medicinal qualities, or even that they are descended from dragons! Due to hunting and poaching in their native lands, this gecko’s existence in the wild is under threat.
