That's GECKO, not GEICO!
"Geico commercials were probably the thing that got me liking geckos. Finally, I bought one for my son's birthday. Here's a little quiz on our new pet. Enjoy!"

The Geico gecko is actually patterned after a real species of gecko. Which one?
Another thing you might have noticed about the Geico gecko is that he speaks with a British accent. Does England fall within a gecko's range of natural habitat?
Speaking of speaking, it is apparent that the computer-generated Geico mascot has the ability to talk. Real geckos can also vocalize, and they are unique among reptiles for their ability to do so. What are the typical sounds that a gecko makes?
Whistling and barking
Whining and complaining
Hissing and rattling
Chirping and clicking
The Geico mascot displays a trait that his species of gecko does not actually have. In fact, of the five subfamilies of Gekkonidae, only one of the families (Eublepharinae, consisting of 27 species), has this ability. What ability?
As the type of species it is designed as, the Geico mascot's eyes would be shaped a certain way for it to truly be a diurnal creature. This time the animators got it right. To be diurnal, would a gecko's pupils be round (like a human's), or slit (like a cat's)?
(One Word (Round or Slit))
Geico sells insurance. Some geckos have their own version of an insurance policy when danger looms - they use a defence mechanism called caudal autotomy. What does that mean?
They can shed their tails
They can jump up to a meter high
They can shed their skin
They can camouflage themselves
Another interesting characteristic of geckos is their ability to stick to smooth surfaces. Not every species of gecko has this ability, but the large majority of them do. What do geckos have on their feet that allows them to cling so well?
What have you seen Geico's television gecko eat? Probably nothing that geckos actually do eat, if anything. Which of these is not a good snack for a gecko?
What other family of lizards has more species than the gecko family, or Gekkonidae?
The gecko that I purchased for my son's birthday can be called a skunk gecko, but what is its proper title?
White lined gecko
