Unsinkable Gecko


Being small sometimes has its advantages. The Brazilian pygmy gecko, which is so tiny insects dwarf it, escapes the notice of many predators and can hide in the minutest of spaces. Not only is it unusually small, it has some other very odd and extremely cool adaptations.

To see these adaptations in action, check out this BBC video clip, narrated by Sir David Attenborough (and raise your hand if you want do be David Attenborough when you grow up).
