Mr and Ms White in pictures – ‘Smells Good’

Geckos are probably most common “domesticated” animals in Indonesia. They sneak in through windows, doors and cracks in ceilings. So, it isn’t any wonder there are many beliefs connected to them. So many, you can even make up some new by yourself.



Gecko baik baik saja, karena dia makan banyak nyamuk  –  Gecko is just a good (animal), because he eats a lot of mosquitoes

Benar! Dan dia ada 4 ketek  –  True! And he has 4 armpits

Jadi banyak nyamuk pingsan karena bau dia juga  –  Therefore, many mosquitoes also faint because of his smell*

*They do not smell, unless they are dead.
