Name:   Gecko foot / toe hairs (Hemidactylus frenatus)
Copyright:   Copyright 2002 Dennis Kunkel Microscopy, Inc.
Description:   Caption: Gecko (lizard) foot / toe hairs (Hemidactylus frenatus). A lizard's foot has at least a half a million microscopic hairs, (one-tenth the thickness of a human hair). The end of each hair is split into smaller hairs. At the frayed ends these smaller hairs have spatula-shaped structures -- about a billion per gecko. This spatula-shaped tip can flatten over rough or smooth surfaces and increases the area with which the hair can make contact. The geckos movement is accomplished by rolling and un-rolling these hairs onto the surface.
Magnification*: x260
Type: SEM
    *(Magnifications are based on a 35mm slide image of 24mm in the narrow dimension.)
