Still no sign of Crested Geckos

After two nights of extensive searching for the Crested Gecko we still were unable to find any. This is an indication how rare this gecko really is in its natural habitat!

So far we found several leachies (Rhacodactylus leachianus) and one female mossy giant geckos (Mniarogekko chahoua). These giant geckos live in the taller and more mature trees of the forest, whereas the Crested Gecko (Correlophus ciliatus) occupies the lower trees and bushes.

Habitat researched on the Isle of Pines where Crested Geckos (Correlophus ciliatus) are suspected.
