I would have assumed dragon too at first glance! Hmm, not sure what Gekko means over there but here, they're small lizard type things that eat mossies and my cats love to chase them. I like her pose.
Here in my part of the US, we have the Mediterranean House Gekko. They're roughly 4 to 6 inches (10 to 15 cm), kind of pink/translucent in color and mainly nocturnal.In other words, they look nothing like this guy!
