The creators of the award-winning Flight of the Honey Bee team up again for a look at a remarkable lizard: the gecko.

Meet the gecko, the escape artist of the lizard world. Hawks, rats, and snakes would love to catch one for their dinner, but the gecko’s amazing ability to protect itself and outsmart predators keeps it safe from day to day. The gecko is more than a match for its pursuers, using clever camouflage and dropping its tail as a decoy to evade them. And even beyond its escape abilities, the gecko is fascinating, with feet covered in tiny hairs for gripping (even upside down!) and eyes that it cleans with its tongue. This wonderful introduction to one of the coolest lizards on the planet will captivate amateur scientists.
