This day gecko has a body colour varying between grayish green, grayish brown and bluish green, and its tail is bluish. A rust-coloured stripe can be seen extending from the nostril to the eye. The back has reddish coloured dots. A gray lateral stripe extends from the eye to the hind leg. Not as colourful as other day geckos, but doesn’t deserve its name!
Building wall surrounded by garden, coastal.
Distribution: west coast of Madagascar in the general area of Majunga, Comoros, Zanzibar, and some coastal areas of mainland Tanzania. Inhabits trees, lowland vegetation and buildings. A daily visitor to my balcony and room during an extended stay in Zanzibar.
