“I was clearing out a storage room at the NinjaGym® training center in Koh Samui Thailand and found this little gecko with a large bark.
They are rather aggressive when cornered and will emit a loud defensive bark. These Ninja Lizards remind me of the raptors from the movie Jurassic Park.
Within a few weeks, I started finding a few more and taking them out into the woods. Their bark is worse than their bite, but they do like to put on a good show.
They are often called the the “f*ck you” lizard!” This is because they have a very loud mating call that they perform throughout the day and very often right when you are deep asleep that sounds like they are saying, “f*ck you.”
The official name is the Tokay Gecko.
