Skin conditions in geckos
The skin is the largest organ of the body. Reptile skin is unique and has many functions which include protecting the body, providing camouflage and making vitamin D3. Some geckos have specialised skin on their feet with tiny ridges on the sole; these act like adhesive suckers allowing the gecko to stick to glass so that he is able to walk up the walls of his house!
