Day gecko

Day geckos are lizards that live in countries around the Indian Ocean, especially on the island of Madagascar off the coast of Africa. Day geckos are brightly colored and, unlike most geckos which are nocturnal, they are active during the day. Day geckos feed mostly on insects, but also occasionally on fruit and flower nectar.

Day geckos are popular in the exotic pet trade.

The Mongabay Kids site (kids.mongabay.com) aims to help children learn about rainforests and the environment. This site is still under development and I am working to add additional content as time permits. If you have comments or are interested in submitting educational content for the site, please feel free to contact me.

The site is available in many different languages, including Portuguese, Chinese, French, Spanish, Japanese, and German.
