thnx Berndatte :)i'm really glad to join that mission.. :) i was gonna start one myself actually.. :D
Cool photo! Would be a great addition to our Biodiversity in Egypt mission:http://www.projectnoah.org/missions/8342...
thnx karnel.. :)done..
Cute portrait!As there is still a question over the species, please can you remove the scientific name & tick the "help me to ID this species" box in edit. We have several herp experts within the community & I am sure they will be able to help you to identify this.
I have 4 different species of geckos living in my house...
yeah i agree that i havn't seen them in the push up position before..but the coloration and headshape is very similar to the house geckos we have in egypt..they r pretty different than urs..anyway if u could confirm any identification plz notify me.. :)
Thanks BishoyZak. Unfortunately, I don't know your species. I was looking at Stenodactylus sp. http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-LCsjLmOgDsw/Th... but again, I don't know it. However I do know Hemidactylus frenatus. It lives in my house. I have never seen it in the "push-up" position. It is a very variable species http://www.wildherps.com/species/H.frena... and mine: http://www.projectnoah.org/spottings/714... and http://www.projectnoah.org/spottings/719... But they have different headshape and toes and forelegs than yours I would say.
thnx S Frazier for ur comment.. :)regarding the feet he was scared maybe cuz i was holding him on my hand.. but he could scale vertical smooth surfaces and ceilings normally..but i can't be definite about it being a house gecko or a sand gecko.. if u could bring me a confirmed reference that would be great.. :)
Hello. Sorry, this is not Hemidactylus frenatus which does not have this posture or limb structure, general shape or coloration. House geckos have specially adapted feet which allow them to scale vertical smooth surfaces and ceilings. The feet on this spotting are clearly somethings else...a sand gecko?
wow!very interesting coloration...
lovely shot and nicely captured pose !
