Just in case you were thinking about it...

The fish-scale gecko has a freaky way of eluding danger. When snatched by an attacker, it rips off its scales and skin so it can slip away unscathed. Basically, it streaks to survive.

But there’s more to their sticking power, says  of the University of Massachusetts at Amherst.

The grippers could handle items up to 880 lbs. (400 kilograms) in mass and 100 times larger than the grippers in volume. Sensors on the grippers could detect when the devices made contact and were aligned correctly.

Here is ingredients list and guaranteed analysis:

Prey: Geckos eat a wide variety of insects, spiders, and other invertebrates. The regular gecko is a small-medium sized gecko with indigo skin. Like their cousins the silver geckos, they are mostly peaceful but tend to be rather aggressive in groups. They are very quick on their feet and are fond of using their numbers to rush and overwhelm the opponent.

The silver gecko, also called little gecko, is a small sized gecko with silver skin. They are the smallest and least aggressive of all geckos and are not very resistant to damage. They have thus far only been observed in southern .

Davis When I did a few weeks ago, I noticed that despite its famously sticky feet, this couldn’t get a grip. He just kept scrabbling in place on the side of the tub, like someone running up a down escalator. (Related: "")The spatulae exert an attraction between neutral molecules called a van der Waals force. Usually it’s very weak, but the number of spatulae put the foot in superclose contact with surfaces, giving them great dry adhesion.
