The Madagascar day gecko, Phelsuma madagascariensis, is a brightly-coloured lizard.
Least Concern (LC)
Day geckos move around and sleep on vertical surfaces, without falling off. Under their toes are lamellae, or ridges, consisting of thousands of microscopic hairs called setæ, which, together with electromagnetic forces, ensure the gecko sticks perfectly, even on a smooth pane of glass.
The geckos are diurnal, very brightly-coloured and have round pupils.
