Do Gecko's make noise?

Postby Em Eye » Tue, 11 Oct 2005 10:49 pm

Ok it may be another dumb question...do Gecko's make noises? I've been hearing a very quiet weird squeeking noise is it from the Geckos?

This is also a gecko called a Tokay Gecko. You can find them across the harbour on p. batam, p. bintan, p. galang. These little bad boys bite like the devil and have a very loud voice that goes "TO kay" "Tokay" hence the name. When I was working in the vietnamese refugee camp in P. Galang we had these suckers and they would get on the mosquito netting over the bed and let go with one of their calls and it would wake the dead!

Yes, and they screech very loud at times which can be very irritating. Set lizard baits where you know where they roam and that may rid some of them.

Geckos are nice. Let them live!
Actually I've killed few by accident, when they were hidding in my tea pot. Tea with geckos is awful. Don't try it at home.

They also make a clicking sound -- five or six rapid clicks.

Those clicking sounds they make is like tik tik tik, in my hubby's mother tongue geckos are called tiktiki 'cause of that. Hate geckos!

SMS, hate that pic as well, I would surely die if I saw one of those anywhere near me! :(
It's not getting any smarter out there. You have to come to terms with stupidity, and make it work for you.

So we're back to posting silly pics eh? Give some thought to Pal who is trying to work out the laggy site bit.

CD, once again, you're an evil person! Believe it or not, I even find those lizard imitations creepy!
