Large forest gecko, with a SVL of 18.5cm and nearly that again for the tail. Characterized by orange spots on a blue/grey background. Very vocal and often heard first rather than seen.
Naturally occurs in trees but has adapted well to human habitation so often seen around buildings up in the roof etc. at night. Very wide ranging species from Bangladesh, through India, Burma, throughout SE Asia and across into Philippines and Indonesia. This one seen in the gardens surrounding a local ecolodge in Bali. Sorry but I cant find an exact location on the map but know its in Nusa Dua.
This species is so vocal that its Latin name and some local names are derived from the sounds it makes. Ref: EcologyAsia.
