I would go further to say that the white gecko and the robot may touch each other while both are suspended from the wall for points to be awarded for both, but it is not necessary.
Also since the rules say "The Biomimicry Wall completely supports: ...All the weight of the White Gecko” the Gecko must be supported by the wall and not the robot at the end of the match. The rules only say the two scoring elements ”may" be in contact with each other.

I will attempt to clarify, feel free to correct me if I am wrong!

You can score points for the white gecko hanging on the wall and/or your team’s robot hanging on the wall. 

In either case, the wall must completely support the weight of the object attached to the wall. Your robot and the gecko may be touching one another, but the wall must fully support the weight of your robot and the white gecko in order to score points for either. 

Example: the robot sits on the play field, holding the gecko while the gecko merely touches the wall. (no points awarded) 
Example: the robot fully hangs on the wall while holding the white gecko. (points awarded only for robot) 
Example: the gecko is fully supported by the wall, while the robot is leaning against the wall. (points awarded only for gecko) 
Example: the robot and the gecko hang fully from the wall and only the gecko’s tail touches the robot. (points awarded for both)

Hello,
We are a rookie team. Reading through the scoring requirements for this mission – what does The Biomimicry wall completely supports ALL THE WEIGHT OF THE ROBOT – what does this mean ? 

a) After the team places Gecko on to the Biomimicry wall, will there be a special robot that referee places on the wall in making sure that Gecko does not fall down ?
b) ???

Please advise ??
