Gecko Drinks ~ Isak Pretorius Spots 'Ball Lickers!

The DailyMail shares South African photographer Isak Pretorius's imagery of the Namibian Gecko licking its balls -- its eyeballs, that is! Says Pretorius...
"In these coastal dunes, the warm desert air meets the cold air of the Atlantic ocean, creating a dense layer of mist almost every morning until about 9am. ‘This layer of mist only stretches about three miles inland and creates a very unique environment. ‘Their most fascinating characteristic is the way in which they gather moisture from licking droplets of water off their beautiful big eyeballs."
Naturally beautiful -- and hilarious! What a cool animal!
