Grass Gekkos are passive Mobs in Don't Starve Together. They are found in Rockyland Biomes and act as an alternative source of Cut Grass. When killed, Gekkos drop 0-2 Cut Grass and 1 Leafy Meat. Grass Gekkos have a chance of spawning from planted Grass Tufts.
Grass Gekkos have a 1% chance to spawn from picking a Grass Tuft. This can only happen if there are no Grass Gekkos in a distance of 20 tiles around.
Grass Gekkos spend their time slowly wandering around and sleeping in the sun. When approached, the Gekkos will jump up in alarm and dash away, leaving their "tail". This tail is actually a piece of Cut Grass. The Gekko will regrow the tail two full days after dropping it.
- Many real life lizards shed their tail when attacked by a predator. The lizard then slowly regrows it.
- Grass Gekkos, when sleeping, will rest with their legs pointed behind them, just like real life lizards, such as iguanas, do when relaxed.
- Grass Gekkos used to be able to get Diseased and would die within two days after getting contaminated. In A New Reign however, this feature has been removed.
- If a player corners a Gekko and attacks it, it will sometimes run over the world border onto the Ocean.
