Caption

Gecko foot. Coloured scanning electron micrograph (SEM) of a gecko's (family Gekkonidae) foot, showing specialised hairs, or setae. These hairs enable the gecko to cling to smooth surfaces by taking advantage of weak intermolecular forces, known as Van der Waals forces. Magnification: x100 when printed 10 centimetres wide.
