Imagine getting a call from a lizard.  Well that happened to Dr. Claire Simeone.  It all started when Claire was enjoying her lunch.  She got a call from the hospital and thought that there was a seal related emergency.  When Claire picked up she heard nothing but silence. After that Claire received nine calls in fifteen minutes.  Claire was worried there actually was an emergency at the hospital and so she rushed to the hospital. She didn’t care that it was her lunch break, she left her food and tried to get to the hospital as fast as possible.  When she got there, she noticed none of the doctors were worried or rushing. They were all enjoying their time eating their lunch and talking. Claire was surprised that no one seemed to be acting like there was an emergency.  All her co-workers were asking why she looked so worried. She asked them who made the emergency call and she told them that she had gotten fifteen calls. Her co-workers immediately told her nobody was inside, so who could possibly make a call. It was in that moment that she got another call.  She immediately went inside to the phone to see who was making the call. When Claire got to the phone she noticed that a gecko was sitting on the touchscreen of the phone. It was the gecko making the calls all along. There was no emergency. I guess the gecko was bored and just wanted to have a little fun making prank calls.

Claire was so amazed with what happened that she had to tweet what had just occurred to her.  People responded to these hilarious series of events. When they first saw the gecko, it escaped.  But Claire got another call and saw the gecko on the phone again. This time they managed to catch the gecko.  After the incident, the gecko was moved to another plant away from phones according to Claire.
