Our time in Kampot has been relaxing mostly swimming, playing soccer and beating Dad at Pétanque. Toby really loves Geckos he thinks they look a bit like dinosaurs and he has been hunting for them every evening and taking pictures of them.
Enjoying the pool
Tob has Petanque sorted
Today he and Holly have done Some research about the Geckos we have been seeing in Vietnam and Cambodia. This is what they found out:
- they can grow up to 15cm long. We've seen lots of baby ones and one big one
- they eat spiders and insects. We have had them living on the walls and ceilings of most of our accommodation.
- they make chirping noises like fantails. They are loud and sometimes wake us up.
Here is a scan of the insides of a Gecko
And here are some pics of ones we have found
this ones a big one
Heaps of the gather round the lights on sights at night
This one has no tail
This ones a master of camouflage- can you see him?
So that's our Gecko collection
