      Review of the year: the cutest animal pictures of 2011 A gecko licks the morning dew off its eyeballs. This gecko is found on coastal sand dunes in Namibia. The nocturnal reptiles collect water on their eyeballs in the early morning when a mist bank descends as cool coastal air hits warm desert air. Then they lick it off to have a drink. It took photographer Isak Pretorius three days in to get the licking picture, following gecko tracks across the dunes through the mist.

And though it likely brings a smile to your face like it did to ours, it also brings into focus a more sobering topic. According to NPR, some lizard populations are going extinct and the cause, scientists suspect, is climate change.
