Gold dust day gecko

A gecko sparkles in the sunlightThis gecko is probably the most commonly seen here, given that it’s diurnal, numerous, and not shy. It doesn’t hurt either that it’s so brightly colored. Its brilliant green and gold body has red markings on the head and back. A striking blue above the eyes and matching blue feet complete the ensemble.

The intensity of the colors can dull to a dowdy hue at certain times but when they’re at their brightest, they really are like little jewels.
