Crested Geckos at last!

One of the first Crested Geckos we found was this tailless female. So far we found about six animals which are all remarkably similar in coloration and pattern.

Although the animal appears brownish in the pictures - all animals found had a yellowish appearance.

The red spot on the flank is a characteristic of all animals found thus far.

All adult animals found so far were without a tail. It is known that crested geckos, unlike most geckos, do not regenerate their tails.

In the wild, crested geckos are found balancing on lianas or on top of leaves, at a height of about 2 - 3 meters. They seem to avoid larger trees.
