The Brazilian pygmy gecko has hydrophobic skin that water cannot penetrate. The gecko is also super small and lightweight, maxing out at about an inch long. Being tiny and water repellant, it is virtually unsinkable and can sit right on the surface of water.

To see it in action, check out this awesome David Attenborough clip from the Life series.
