Gecko Friends or Enemies? {26 of 31 Slice of Life}

Squeals and a little toe tapping came my way from A and she's pointing to two darker gray/black geckos.  The conversation goes like this - "Mom, they are fighting."  "They can't be fighting - they are probably playing."  "Um, that one has the head of the other one in it's mouth!  I think that's fighting!" I finally look the direction she is referring to and not only does one gecko have the other gecko's head in it's mouth; it's dangling the whole gecko off the pelican statue they are playing on.  They appear frozen in time.  I step a little bit closer and they are still frozen in time.  I wait and together they fall to the ground only to get back up on the pelican statue together and possibly start over their playful moment.  I think if they were fighting they would have gone their separate ways.

  1. Kind of makes me want to research geckos. That's some strange playing. I like the way you finally look--such a mom thing.

    Hope you're feeling better!

  2. What fun to watch nature in a playful (?) act.
