Nodding Day Gecko

Madagascan Day GeckoThe repeat of Episode 2 of Sir David Attenborough's brilliant new series Life In Cold Blood is on BBC1 this evening at 6pm. (CLICK for the golden frog waving its last in the wild.) Episode 3 is on BBC1 tomorrow at 9pm. It includes another first: a Madagascan day gecko (shown) nodding its head to entice or to intimidate an insect - called a plant hopper - into flicking small balls of honeydew for the gecko to eat. Click the title link for video footage of this behaviour, never filmed before.
