Ilex geckos are perfectly adapted to live in holly bushes, where they cling to the woody stems and rely on their false leaves and color to camouflage them. They are so well camouflaged and slow-moving that they rarely draw the attention of birds nesting among the bush, allowing them to safely rob the nest of eggs to eat. But the small size of an ilex gecko belies its prowess in plant magic. When threatened they can release a burst of this magic into the holly bush they're in, causing dramatic, rapid overgrowth. Because the leaves are hideously spiny, the gecko can escape unscathed; this same technique creates a safe nest for the gecko's eggs.

Holly bushes around the Keep are infested with ilex geckos during the winter. Although beloved for their cuteness, they aren't terribly smart, and are often found infesting mistletoe as well. Careless magi under the mistletoe may end up with a gecko licking their cheek. This is dubiously considered good luck.
