On a return trip to Costa Rica, adventure host Coyote Peterson of Brave Wilderness went chasing after a turnip-tailed gecko who was doing its best to hide in place. Once Peterson had a hold of the two-tailed reptile, he made particular note of the gecko’s prehistoric eyes, its split pads and sticky blue tongue.
That’s one of the most unique features about this gecko. It has a dark blue tongue. Now that tongue is very sticky so they can sit there and wait for their prey to approach open up
their mouth …kind of like a toad or frog
