Nature's semi-displacement hull design

I think Mother Nature designed a semi-displacement hull for the gecko that wants to cross water...

Of course, it could also be an example of those guys who take snowmobiles out on water and as long as they stay on plane, don't sink.

That Gecko is just trying to sell you boat insurance.

Geckos arenít the only lizards that walk on water. These guys live in my back yard. Iíve only seen one run on water but it was pretty cool.
