The Tokay Gecko is a fascinating creature made by God.
The tokay gecko smells using its nose and the Jacobson’s organ, which is a pair of sacs lined with sensory cells in the palate. The tongue transports airborne molecules of scent to the Jacobson’s organ. This gecko can leave its tail behind when a predator has hold of it. This part will continue to move while the lizard then escapes. This function probably developed after the Fall to help this species stay alive. Don’t worry; it has the ability to regrow its tail. The feet of the gecko are specially designed to allow this creature to cling to almost any surface—from trees and leaves to ceilings and walls.
