Description: Pat was convinced that some kids had come and collected geckos in a jar and left them in the veld and that they would cook to death. But the jar with a lid with stab-holes had obviously been in situ for some time and I think that in fact the geckos were using he jar as a safe hideaway and going out at night and returning by day as an abode - they were all alive and well altough they took some time to wake up
