This is an animation of a house gecko (Hemidactylus platyurus) photo-captured with the Beastcam MACRO live in the Irschick lab at the University of Massachusetts at Amherst. Mass is 4.6 grams. CGI artist Johnson Martin retopologized and reconstructed the gecko from images captured with the Canon G16 cameras. We partnered with Cameron Siler from the University of Oklahoma and Tony Gamble from Marquette University to create this model, which they will use for testing models of predation and gliding in geckos. Creation of this model was supported by NSF grant 1657662.
