Description Just for the record, because this system doesn't permit okinas, there is a break between the o's in the word Mo'o for the pronunciation in Hawaiian.Mo'o Pili - clinging gecko (literally 'gecko clinging')Walea ana 'oe me ke onaona - Delight with the sweet oneA sweet little Mo'o resting on the elegant glossy frond of a Pritchardia beccariana Fan Palm in Ha'iku Maui Hawai'i. I love the chirping sounds they make. There are several types here on Maui. In Makawao many of the Mo'o are brown, while in the more temperate rain forests they appear in green with distinctive red markings on their backs. The markings are like a signature and no two are alike. I have seen Mo'o in Makena which are black with golden specks, they are quite beautiful and very uncommon. In Kihei I see the green Mo'o with red markings. Phelsuma laticaudataxon: Phelsuma laticaudafamily: Gekkonidaecommon name(s): gold dust day gecko The ones we have here at our home in Makawao are delightful to watch. Attracted by water, often we see them in the house clinging to the ceiling near the kitchen. There is a small ohana of Mo'o which live on our lanai clinging to the ceiling and they are amusing to watch in the evening light as they catch moths and other small insects.Here is an interesting story excerpt:The following is an excerpt quote from Guardian Geckos - History, Facts and Lore Behind Hawaiian Geckos'The Mo'o (geckos) of Hawai'i have earned a great reputation rooted in the earliest history and the first migrations to the islands. While there are over 900 species of geckos worldwide, only eight species have settled on the islands, four of these in recent years.All geckos have immovable eyelids. The eyes with unusual vertical pupils are covered by a transparent membrane which the gecko cleans with its long, sticky tongue. They are the only lizards who are able to make sounds, other than hissing, and their name is a direct imitation of their nightly chatter.Highly specialized toe pads covered
