photographing and learning about wildlife
This gecko species was newly described in 2008, and was one of 6 seen over 2 nights in Langkawi, Malaysia. Upon approaching this individual to take a picture, the gecko jumped from the rock he was standing on and landed in the shallows at the side of a stream, where he remained motionless despite me getting close to take photos. Although obviously a gecko, from a distance and sat in water, it looked remarkably similar to a young alligator.
