These Geckos Are One of the Only Geckos With Eyelids!

These ground-dwelling geckos are one of the only geckos with eyelids! If you look at their tails you'll notice they are a bit pudgy - this is how they store water (similar to camels). They also use their tails to communicate - waving it during territory disputes, shaking it with excitement, and even letting it drop off when a predator tries to grab them by it.
