Allegria Designs Gecko Pin The pins are sculptured from silver plated pewter that has been oxidised and buffed to obtain a contemporary, antique look. They are so adorable, we know you will love them. There are around 750 gecko species in the world with 91 Australian species. Geckos are found in a range of predominantly warm climatic conditions. Australian geckos are largely nocturnal, feeding on a wide variety of arthropods and termites with most activity occurring during the first few hours after sunset. They are capable of vocalisation in the form of a wheezing squeak or bark. Their name is a direct imitation of that sound.
