Awesome stuff man and a great selection of finds.

The last gecko is Pachydactylus haackei, Haacke's Thin-skinned Gecko.

Always nice to see some of our special endemics.

Good stuff well done! I always knew the black spitters where there but never found one myself in that area.

Lovely photos.
That xeropaga is gorgeous. It is still on my wish list to see in its natural habitat. Incredible.

They are common in certain spots - the spots however are very small!

That's good to know, thanks.
Problem is, I'm very far away from those spots ;)
One day...
