Attack of the killer mosquitoes!

See this little gecko? He lives on our porch and eats bugs. We think he is cute and don't chase him. But something did! We think he was attacked by a giant mosquito! There have been tons of giant prehistoric mosquitoes flying around. They are so big they can suck the tail off a gecko.

And here's the proof!
We're not kidding about their size.


Look at this! This isn't trick photography.
It really is huge! Run and hide or you could be next!!!!

{the girl adds... don't let Comet and BLU scare you. There are no giant killer mosquitoes in our yard. They are freaking out over harmless crane flies.}

Whoooa, those are gross flies! Glad we don't get those. Poor little Gecko, can he grow a tail back or not?

Hi, friends!
Mosquito, bug or whatever is.... is a monster!
You have very interesting things there in your yard!
I have the same question... the Gecko will have his tail growing again?

The gecko is cute though, poor little guy.. will he be ok?

Whatever that giant creature is, it's scary! Poor gecko, even if his tail does grow back. I would rather keep my existing tail than having to be attacked just to grow a new tail. Can you imagine being attacked by another creature?
