Meet Brandy, our #CrestedGecko. They are also called #EyelashGeckos, because of the crests above the eyes, which serve to keep debris out, and look similar to eyelashes.
These #geckos are endemic to a couple islands in #NewCaledonia, in the #PacificOcean, about 750 miles east of #Australia.
On these islands, you can find these #lizards in #TropicalRainforest habitat. During the day, they spend much of their time resting in thick vegetation on the forest floor, but when these #nocturnalanimals are active at night, they expertly scale the treetops in search of fruit, nectar and insects.
Their #omnivorous diet is somewhat unusual among #geckos, as most species eat only #animal matter.
In order to navigate the trees, these #animals have a couple fascinating #adaptations. First, they have a grasping (prehensile) tail, which allows them to grasp branches for support when climbing. Secondly, in common with many other geckos, they have feet covered in hair-like setae, which enable them to scale even very smooth vertical surfaces. This is possible due to a force known as #VanderWaals; molecular attractions that occur over short distances, originating from fluctuations in charge distributions between nearby molecules. Such fluctuations in charge sync up, creating an attractive force between the surface and the geckos feet!
Like many other #geckos, they will periodically lick their eyes to keep them moist, and to remove debris.
They are solitary #reptiles, that only come in contact with one another to mate or defend their territories. Mating occurs during most of the year, and neither parents are invested in rearing their offspring - their parental duties are done once the eggs are laid, and hatchlings must quickly learn to fend for themselves if they are to survive.
Unlike mammals, whose sex determination is #genetic, reptiles have temperature-dependent sex determination. Certain temperature ranges of developing eggs produce males, while other ranges produce females. Temperature also influences the rate of development, and their size at hatching.

We’ve awoken from our daytime slumber to introduce ourselves. We’re Rachel and Chelsey- just two witchy women making jewelry and casting spells. We hope you’ll join us 🧙🏼♀️🌙🧙🏻♀️

داستان پرکشش ، ماجرا اعصاب خرد کن، هنرپیشه ها عالی (جیک جیلنهال و ایمی آدامز و بقیه ) و از اون فیلمها که بعد از تموم شدنش هزارتا سوال براتون ایحاد میشه که قطعا برید نقد و تحلیل فیلم رو بخونید تا کاملا متوجه بشید که چند لایه داشته قضیه !
زنی که صاحب یک گالری هنریه از شوهر سابقش که نویسنده است پیش نویس یک کتاب رو دریافت میکنه که ازش میخواد کتاب رو بخونه و نظر بده و این شروع ماجراست ...
