Kendall's Rock Gecko

Cnemaspis kendalli


Geckos of the Cnemaspis genus have round pupils and slender, clawed toes without adhesive pads. Kendall's Rock Gecko has a distinctively grey and brown patterned dorsum and a striped, spiky tail which can be raised and curled over the back. The tail has whorls of tiny spines, most noticeable at the base.


A species of mainly primary forest up to 1500 metres, mainly preferring damp cave entrances or rocky outcrops but also nearby tree trunks. It is largely nocturnal, but can be active on dull afternoons.


Spotted on the underside of a rocky outcrop beside coastal jungle path between Kampong Paya and Kampong Genting on Tioman Island, Malaysia.
