Your guess is as good as mine! These two little Geckos were crawling towards each other on a Jasmine branch in my back yard just a few days ago. I’m not sure why but they caught my attention while I was watering my flowers. They were crawling towards each other when all of a sudden the one coming from the bottom leaped towards the other one and put his entire mouth (which I had no idea could open SO WIDE) around the other’s entire head!!!!! In the picture you can see just the pretty blue eye barely escaping the others mouth!
I watched this for several minutes wondering “is the one trying to kill the other by suffocation? Is he threatening power over the other or is it a LOVE bite? " I hesitated taking the time to go inside to grab my phone so I could capture the picture, but I realized soon that this could go on a while…. So, I did get my phone and was actually able to get several pictures all the while being totally ignored by my little creepy crawler lovers, fighters or what evers?
After a few more minutes, I decided to take matters into my own hands and sprayed them with the hose. Immediately they broke apart and scurried off in opposite directions never to know what they were doing. UNLESS of course, I Google and become educated in Gecko love affairs?
I love to spend time in nature and drinking in God’s creation. It’s amazing how nature works and just knowing and believing that God created each and every single living thing is truly awesome!!!
21 So God created the great creatures of the sea and every living thing with which the water teems and that moves about in it, according to their kinds, and every winged bird according to its kind. And God saw that it was good.
