*5 fingered monster relaxing but isn’t it cute

…. still wouldn’t touch it or disturb it though !!!!!!!!

this Lanzarote monster can be found relaxing in Teguise Lanzarote
The real ones are one of the friendliest creatures you are likely to come across, in your home or garden,

It is the East Canary gecko.

Known to locals as perinquíns or perenquíns, these timid little creatures are very shy, but utterly charming.

If you manage to get close enough, you can see that their eyes are like molten gold.

They come with various coloured markings up their sides, from an emerald green to an azure blue.

We’ve had a few come to visit us, and they’re always made to feel welcome – particularly as they happily munch their way through flies and mosquitoes for you.

Fortunately, geckos (as with most lizards) can grow their tails back afterwards
They thrive in the lava walls that decorate so many properties in Lanzarote, and you’ll often see them scurrying for cover amongst the roadside shrubbery.

They are part of the (Latin) gekkonidae and are known in Latin as “tarentola angustimentalis”.They were classified by Franz Steindachner, an Austrian zoologist, in 1891. This was during his time as director of the zoological department of Naturhistorisches Museum in Vienna. he later became director of the museum in 1898.*
