Gecko Saves Friend from Snake (VIDEO)

Gecko Saves Friend from Snake (VIDEO)

Hereís something you donít see every day!† A gecko in Thailand comes to the rescue of another gecko who is being attacked by a snake.

There are five sub-families of geckos with numerous species among them.† The geckosí toes have the ability to adhere to most surfaces without liquids or surface tension.† Thatís why they walk on walls and ceilings.

Found mostly in warm climates, some species of gecko coexist with humans inside their homes and are referred to as House Geckos.† Eating insects make them the perfect roommate in tropical climes.

It may have taken this brave fellow a little time to come to the assistance of his buddy, but look how he appears to be planning the best method of attack.† That is one very determined gecko!

I don't know if this is the same video but here is a link to a video that has been posted all over the net under the same heading of Gecko Saves Friend from Snake for those of you that may want to watch, since the one in this article has been removed.
