My wife is terrified of geckos, which belong to the lizard family. We had a gecko in our kitchen recently and we had a lot of trouble trying to get it out the house. Here is our struggle in pictures:
Look at the remarkable suction power of its feet!
I scooped up the gecko with a cornflakes box but it tried to escape...
So I carefully moved the cornflakes box outside to the balcony...
Then the gecko gladly posed for a beautiful picture!
With some gentle persuasion, the gecko crawled over the edge of the balcony
The gecko attempted to crawl back up the wall...
But it fell off.
I sprayed water on it and it fell!
The gecko was remarkably fine and soon crawled off somewhere!
