Small Gecko of a light grey color with darker grey markings on it's head and body and bands of darker grey on it's tail. Slightly paler underneath.


Normally found anywhere where there are trees or houses on which to hide (through camouflage) as long as it is warm enough and there is a sufficient source of food (usually found around lights at night).


This one was found taking a swim (not very successfully) in the pool, which has trees overhanging it.
