From this angle, the yellow head is not the most prominent feature -- I'm dazzled by the turquoise side stripe. They live mainly in bamboo forest and eggs are laid in bamboo cane.

Geckos have special pads on their feet that work a little like suction pads enabling them to run up plate glass windows and across ceilings. The rounded fingers and toes distinguish geckos from lizards.
