Ahh one of my favourites, Pachydactylus geitje. I can understand you requesting the ID because this species is one of the more variable species so even specimen from the same locality can look totally different.

Nice photos too!

Most people erroneously call a snake the Puff Adder, Night Adder, or Blowing Viper, So, naturally they will kill it....
