An unlikely pair, the gecko couldn't be happier with his figurine friend, who seems to be his best mate. The pair have been photographed hanging out together among rocks and rubble and even having a sneaky cuddle here and there.

The gecko is also said to enjoy digging sand and napping. Sounds like he's living life.
