`Echo` – Gargoyle Gecko

Echo is 4 years old and could live to be 20. She is about 12cm long (from snout to tail end).

She is originally from New Caledonia, an island off the east coast of Australia.

We feed her a specially-formulated powder that contains fruits like; banana, fig and mango, as well as vitamins and minerals, which she licks up with her tongue.

She has a prehensile tail (which means she can grip with it) and it will re-grow if she loses it.


Come and meet Echo in an Animal Handling or Rainforest Fun with Live Animals teaching session. Please call 0121 450 5093 for more information or to book a visit.
