Back again to Indonesia... where we always enjoyed living and working. When we came home from work in the afternoon, we settled down on our patio with a coffee. As soon as we sat there, the Indonesian House Gecko did hurry down from the roof area, under the gable where they hid. We treated Our Indonesian House Gecko on some coffee as well! Not the Green Crested Lizard, he/she only enjoyed being there with us together. Friendly and not scared at all. Catching mosquitoes and flies and that was very much appreciated by both of us.
- Green Crested Lizard on our patio. We loved this creature for its brilliant colors!
- The door opening goes into our kitchen dining area.
Oh, they came hurrying down the rainwater pipe to the saucer where we poured some coffee with cream. This was sweet condensed milk, as that was the only one available locally.
Wish we had a photo from its tongue in action!
The Indonesian name is 'Cicak', pronounced Chichak. That's exactly the sound they make, calling their own name. They can be rather loud.
- Oh, this is yummy!
There is an even larger Gecko variety, the Tokay, in Indonesian called Tokek. Sadly this is being hunted down and becoming extinct. They are being exported to China, Japan and other Southeast Asian countries where their dried skin is being used in medicine and skincare products.
Let's hope the best for this typical Gecko!
See the video below for hearing its call, it too calls its own name Tokek...
At least we did enjoy nature in Indonesia and respect it too, but the Indonesian people have very little respect for wildlife habitats. Just read the article below about where all the Geckos have gone... SAD!
What is your opinion about his?...
Where have all the Geckos gone? The call of the Tokek or Gecko in Indonesia... It is being hunted down for the money...
