Geckos can walk on water: here’s how (with a video)
We have a lot of the little geckos running around the hotel but so far we have not seen any out for a swim in our pool. Maybe we can put up little chairs for them on the side of the pool ?
A unique blend of surface tension and fast slapping is what allows the geckos to skid across water incredibly fast, at almost a meter a second. Inspired by geckos, scientists could one-day design rapid swimming robots designed for search and rescue in flooded areas.
