The mystery of how geckos manage to scurry up walls and stick to ceilings may have been solved by scientists.
It seems the little lizards have a network of tiny hairs and pads on their feet which produce electrical attractions that literally glue the animals down.
With millions of the hairs on each foot, the combined attraction of the weak electrical forces allow the gecko to stick to virtually any surface – even polished glass.
Californian researchers believe the reptile’s sticky toes could now help them to develop a novel synthetic adhesive that is both dry and self-cleaning.
If a human hand had the equivalent “sticking power”, it could lift huge weights. “If the hands were maximally attached, we estimate that kind of size would be able to hold about 90 pounds (40 kilos) or so,” Professor Autumn Kellar, one of the researchers in the gecko study, told the BBC.

Charlie Sheen has moved from radio rants to a full-scale television blitz, appearing on the “Today Show” to discuss the personal and professional firestorm he’s lit.
The (former) “Two and a Half Men” star talks to Jeff Rossen about, well, a lot – including his “war” with CBS, violence against women, being a role model for his children, charges of anti-Semitism, turning his home into a “crisis management center,” and what he plans to do next.
At various points, Sheen quotes NBA star Allen Iverson, calls himself a “warlock,” directly addresses show creator Chuck Lorre with questions he’s scrawled on index cards, slams Will & Grace, reads sarcastically from the Alcoholics Anonymous handbook, and claims to have “tiger blood” and “Adonis DNA.”
After the jump, Charlie Sheen’s hilariously awesome ‘Unleashed’ radio interview. You gotta listen to this.
