Moorish wall gecko

Tarentola mauritanica


Insectivore wall gecko. Adherent laminae under fingers allow it to walk on walls. Only third and fourth finger end to a claw, allowing the distinction from Mediterranean house gecko (Hemidactylus turcicus), the other common gecko in Mediterranean.


Outer house walls, rural area.
