What's a gecko?
The gecko is a small tropical lizard whom many people consider a harbinger of good luck, prosperity and loyalty.
Throughout Indonesia and Asia, geckos are most welcome to live in people's homes, coming and going as they please.
If your house is full of geckos, it's taken as a sign of many blessing upon your dwelling. They usually live in the bamboo or wood roof and crawl on the walls at night catching mosquitos.
Their call sounds like "gecko... gecko... gecko...," and people believe that if you ask a gecko a question, you can figure out their answer to your question by counting the number of times they say gecko!
