Stump-toed Gecko

A Stump-toed Gecko pauses on a door frame.

This gecko is nocturnal and isn’t often seen out and about during the day. This one was either running late, or had been disturbed from its daytime resting place. Its main identifying feature is that it lacks a claw on the inside digit of its feet. Sadly, in this photo, that feature is hidden on all four feet. C’est la vie.
