Here is a gecko lizard who knows how to beg for food just like a pet dog. The occupants of the house have called it Bart. He has a partner called Maggie. Their names come from the cartoon series, The Simpsons. Don't ask for an explanation; the names just suited them well. Anyway, every time dinner is set, either Bart or Maggie will come down from the ceiling and peek from under the oven toaster. It all began when Bart was seen frequently, patiently waiting under the taoster as people ate at the table. He would look at people like he's begging to be fed.
The Philippine house gecko lizard is related to the Tokay Gecko (Gekko gecko) or tuko (left), a larger nocturnal lizard that largely lives in the woods and rocky areas like cliffs (it is sometimes found in houses). The tuko is considered endangered because it's hunted to be sold as medicine in many parts of Asia such as China. It is also kept as pets by some people although this practice is frowned upon and is illegal without a permit.
