photographing and learning about wildlife
Nocturnal gecko hunting in the rainforests of Madagascar, it can be up to 6 inches in length although this one was around 3 inches. This gecko is a mottled brown colour unless you use a flash to really bring out the red and they get their name from the spiky protrusions above their eyes.
This species is currently listed as vulnerable on the IUCN Redlist with the major threats to its survival being rainforest habitat destruction and illegal harvesting for the pet trade.
Used an off camera flash gun to bring out the red colours.
