You can tell they're crocodile tears, since he's smiling... this is why you never trust Tequila!

I love this pic - Tequila is such a trouble-maker. The water droplet is actually just that, plain water - he'd been misted before photos were taken to help bring out his beautiful yellow coloration.

No, I named it that because of the old saying about crocodile tears - the link in the artist's description explains what he is with more pics :)

You spray your geckos before taking pictures?

How do they feel about this?

They generally feel licky.

I know that's not an emotion for humans, but it is for them. Trust me.

can geckos actually cry. like do they have tear ducts? ive never thought of that until now...

i love the detail on this shot, his skin looks amazing!

CatharsisJB Featured By Owner Jul 25, 2008
I don't think so... these guys have a piece of skin over each eye (which they shed off every time they shed) that would probably keep any tears inside, which would be detrimental to sight.

come to think of it you must be right, because crocodile tears are fake tears.... so the saying must come from how reptiles couldnt cry.

learn something new every day :)

I think the saying came about because there used to be an old wives' tale about crocodiles either crying to lure in prey or in remorse for the animal they were eating.

But I believe crocs actually do have something like a tear gland at least!

Somehow, that creeps the hell out of me that that drop is just sitting there, not bothering him.

He is so cute though, I forgive the utter creepiness.

I...I want him to blink. I WANT HIM TO BLINK AND GET RID OF THAT DROP SO BADLY.


This is why I can't work with reptiles. I'd be driven MAD.


Although gaaahhh I want to hug him he looks so adorable anyways though.
