These are very under rated geckos. I had a large wild caught male which became so tame when I called him he would come out from wherever he was hiding to take mealworms, moths, waxworms and pinkies from a tweezer.

Hi Francois, in a recent revision, they have been elevated to Chondrodactylus.

They are pretty cool geckos.

I snapped this fella in the kgalagadi last month, I think it is a Bibrons. There were plenty around and some were quite big.

My wife thought they were very cute.

If im not mistaken that's a Turners gecko, I was also under the impression that the geckos I caught where Bibron's but it turns out that they are Turners gecko's simply because of geographical location, it was discussed on a thread not too long ago.
