The remarkable adhesive abilities of geckos and mussels have been combined to create a super-sticky material... Synthetic Gecko.

When I was travelling in Indonesia, it was so fun watching the geckos on the ceilings, and to see them surround light bulbs at night to eat the bugs.

Geckoman, Geckoman, goes where ever goes Spiderman...

I saw a thing a couple years ago on TV about how geckos stick to stuff. It was pretty cool.
