Space-Age Reptile

David Attenborough looks at how research has finally revealed the secret behind the remarkable sticking power of the gecko's foot. This discovery could offer truly futuristic ways of sticking objects together, and may even help NASA to explore distant planets. Including a look at the urban-dwelling tokay gecko that happily resides alongside the citizens of Bangkok as one of the few reptiles tolerated in homes.
