Kampot and Geckos

Our time in Kampot has been relaxing mostly swimming, playing soccer and beating Dad at P├ętanque. 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

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
