Next, add the head, legs, and tail.

The front legs are smaller ovals. You can make them curve if you’d like.

Each of the back legs is made of two small ovals. They are connected at the gecko’s knees.

The head is a larger curved line (almost an oval) with a rounded nose.

The tail is made of two curved lines. You can make the tail curve in any direction you’d like. Make the tail wider where it connects to the body and smaller at the end.

Now it’s time to add the toes! Draw 5 toes at the end of each leg.

How to Draw a Gecko - Step-by-Step Tutorial

Step 1: Let's start by drawing the head. Draw an oval with a bump for the eye and leave a space for the body.

Step 2: Now draw two dots for the nose, a long line for the mouth, and two small ovals for the eyes. Did you know? Geckos do not have eyelids, so they have to lick their eyes to keep them clean and keep them from drying out.

Step 6: Last is the tail. Draw a long and pointy triangle--even longer than the rest of the body. If geckos lose their tails, they can grow them back! Some people have geckos as pets. Have your students draw a habitat in a cage for their geckos with light, plants and water.

Interesting Facts about Geckos

Geckos are medium-sized lizards. There are more than 1,000 species of geckos. They live in warm habitats all over the world, and people also keep them as pets.

  • Geckos can grow their tail back if they lose it.

  • Geckos do not have eyelids, so they cannot blink. They lick their eyes to keep them from drying out and to keep them dust-free.
  • Geckos can be many different colors, and some gecko species become a lighter color in the dark.
  • In some species, female geckos are parthenogenic, which means that they can reproduce without make geckos.
  • Geckos are carnivorous and nocturnal, which means they eat meat and are most active at night. Geckos eat insects, and they sometimes also eat small mammals.

Geckos use their toes to stick to surfaces. Their toe pads have Velcro-like bristles called setae. In warmer climates, many people find geckos in their homes. They usually find these lizards walking across their ceilings. The species that is most commonly found indoors is the house gecko. People do not mind having them in their homes because they eat unwanted insects.

It was evident that he was greatly embarrassed by my presence and was very shy. Stopping by the large bed in indecision, he, in turn, tried not to look in my direction, but watched my beloved in anticipation of the development of events.
