When you’re visiting Hawaii, there is a real good chance you’ll see a gecko, possibly in your hotel room. Don’t worry when you see them. They are harmless to us. They won’t bite us, but they do eat mosquitos, ants, and a certain bug that starts with the letter R and ends in “oach”. Hawaii legends have it that geckos are good luck, so consider them to be your new Hawaiian friends. Here’s a short video of a gecko that we filmed on Lanai.
