Cute little gecko butt-dials random people a ‘bazillion’ times from Hawaii seal hospital

At a The Marine Mammal Center in Hawaii, a cute little gecko butt-dialed random people ‘a bazillion’ times before a human figured out what was going on.

Technically it wasn't a butt-dial. It was a gecko foot dial.

Excerpt from the story first told by the human it kinda happened to, Dr. Claire Simeone:

Marine mammal veterinarian Claire Simeone was at lunch when she got a call from Ke Kai Ola, the Big Island hospital where she’s director. There was silence on the other end. Nine more silent calls followed. Fearing a seal emergency, she rushed back.

She wasn’t the only one getting calls, and people started asking why the hospital was calling non-stop.

Trying figure out why a “bazillion” calls were made from one line, she called the phone company and a rep tried to talk her through finding a possible line on the fritz. She walked into a lab and found the culprit.

And that's when she saw the gecko perched on a phone, making calls to everyone in the telephone's recent call history with “HIS TINY GECKO FEET,” as she tweeted the next day.

“You are not going to BELIEVE this story,” she said.
