Malayan Forest Gecko removing water droplets- Cyrtodactylus pulchellus

This unique-looking gecko is different from the normal geckos since it has bent, curved toes. As a result, a Malayan banded gecko cannot climb plastic or glass like the usual ones do (but the tail will break off like normal as a distraction to predators :p)

 

This gecko is nocturnal in nature, evident from the slit pupils. Unlike lizards, geckos do not have eyelids, so they have to lick water droplet or small irritants off using their tongues!
