Learn More About The Gecko Drawing

"The gecko lizard clings with its feet, And it goes into the palace of a king."
- Proverbs 30:28, New World Translation

Geckos are small lizards. There are more than 1,000 species of this reptile around the world, native to every continent but Antarctica.

Most geckos are nocturnal and have good night vision. Some can run across water.

Unlike other lizards, geckos are also vocal, able to make clicks, chirps, cackles, and barking sounds.

Geckos make also great pets as they are easy to care for, easy to handle, and come in beautiful colors and patterns

Would you like to show your love for geckos by drawing one? This easy, step-by-step leopard gecko  drawing tutorial is here to show you how.

All you will need is a pen, pencil, or marker and a sheet of paper. You may also wish to color your finished drawing.
