AJ Academy – Climbing Gecko Experiment!!!

 
Gecko
 

Geckos are some of the coolest animals out there! They have so many amazing adaptations, or features, that help them survive. Today we’ve got a cool experiment that demonstrates these adaptations, but first, let’s learn more about geckos!!!
 

Not only can geckos lick their eyeballs, they can use their tails for balance or to help them glide and land on their feet if they fall out of a tree, and some geckos have skin that can repel water! But the most amazing thing geckos can do is climb on nearly any surface, including walls and ceilings – it’s like a super power!
 

This amazing gecko ability was recently discovered by scientists. If you looked at a gecko foot with a microscope you would see that it is covered in tiny hairs. These hairs branch out, almost like tree branches, into hundreds of endings. Gecko foot hairs are called setae and they attach to surfaces using electrostatic attraction!
 

Geckos have millions of setae that can branch into hundreds of endings! The force of this electrostatic attraction could support the weight of a human adult. Geckos are really amazing!
 

You can test out these electrostatic forces with a few items you probably have at home. Try out this cool gecko experiment and let us know what you find out!
