Dozens of endangered tokay geckos released into the wild

Border guards in the Xishuangbanna Dai Autonomous Prefecture in Yunnan Province have found 32 tokay geckos recently during a routine vehicle check. The geckos were left in a bag on a bus that nobody claimed. The tokay gecko is one of China’s endangered species and they have been sent to a wildlife rescue station for further examination. After the veterinarian confirmed the geckos are able to adapt to the wild, the local border soldiers released them in Mangao national nature reserve. Wild tokay geckos usually live in the holes of cliffs, but have been captured by people resulting in their declining, almost extinct population.
