Iíd imagine it would depend on the gecko. Try sticking your finger in front of a Tokay. That will get your attention :)

When you are bitten, do not remove your finger from the geckoís mouth. Do not pull away. Else youíll take a handful of the geckoís tiny teeth with you. Instead wait for the gecko to let go first.

Bah, depends on the gecko and where they tag you. If the Med gets you on the side of the finger, tip of the finger, side of the hand, or a chunky part like the arm, it wont hurt at all. If youíre tagged on the knuckle, between the fingers, or in one of those juicey parts where a papercut would kill, itíll sting a little. If the lizard decides to deathroll or twist their head and take something with it, you might, MIGHT, get a lizard hickey. I highly doubt a med gecko would make you bleed, though.

Iím warning you about not pulling your hand from their mouth more for the geckoís comfort than your own. Can you believe how it must feel to bite something out of defense and it, in return, ripping a large chunk of teeth from your skull? No teeth and they have trouble eating. Can also lead to an absess in the mouth if they loose their teeth harshly enough.

I understand..thanks for your help...btw im sure a little med. gecko bite couldnt hurt much more than a paper cut. and i see what you mean about how that would be terrible for them to have their teeth ripped out when they were trying to defend themselves. Thanks a lot

give your kid antiobiotics and tie her finger up (since you washed it out already). If your kidís finger was degloved or something, Iíd probably recommend a doctor visit to give stitches. If itís just a small scratch or cut (or hickey), just watch it and if thereís a sign of infection, visit the doc. The gecko will probably be fine. They arenít going to drop dead due to defending themselves from predatory human 2 year olds. Only thing Iíd worry about is stress from the whole thing. A good way to help a gecko get over stress is to leave it alone and keep it in a dark, secluded, quiet room.

There are only 2 or 3 poisoness lizards on the planet. The KomodoDragon (poison was recently found to be part of the spit.. but itís still under question), Gila Monster, and Mexican beaded lizard. None of which can be kept as pets.

Getting bit by flying geckos feels like getting your finger held between two pieces of sandpaper.
