Gorgeous little gecko with blue body and varying degrees of bright yellow head. Very active during the day, most often seen in the trees. This one in our garden. The females are much duller in colour with less distrinction between body and head.
I have only ever seen them in the trees, but in palm trees, more bushy type of trees, jacaranda .. almost any kind of tree. Have not ever noticed them around buildings or garden equipment or anything like that, even though they are very common in urban areas.
Most distressed that these gorgeous creatures are caught by the thousands in the wild in Tanzania and shipped around the world to herpers in little boxes...
