Gold Dust Day Gecko

Phelsuma laticauda


Green lizard, ~4 inches long, with red and gold highlights. The tip of its tail was cream colored, caused perhaps by molted skin that hadn't sloughed off.


Suburban area on insular tropical upland plateau.


Spotted by one of my granddaughters, peeking from behind a picture frame. I captured it, took it outside, released it and took the uploaded images. This is only the second of this species I have spotted in 40+ years of living in Hawaii, and the first indoors.
