Please Identify

Postby Midget » Sun Jun 10, 2007 1:43 pm

I was working at one of our clients sites yesterday, removing and moving the network to a newly built building, here in Abu Dhabi (UAE) when I stumbled upon this little critter in the new furniture shipped from Canada. :shock:

He has greenish marks over his eye lids

Please help as I do not know what type of geckos are in UAE :roll:

Thanks

Hello,

i guess Bunopus tuberculatus or Cyrtopodion sp..Need bigger pics,cause the geckos are very similar.

Rather don't let it go. Give it to someone who has the right permits if you not gonna keep it.

Alexander you do not need permits for geckos in the UAE.

Midget get some better pics and lets get it identified and then someone like Vierflek will be able to guide you as to where it should be released.
It is easier to ask for forgiveness than permission.

hey eric... i have read about this gecko before sometime last year and your pics kinda made me remember about it. Dunno if it is the same genus( Gymnodactylus: which seems to be a messed up genus) or what the localities are but looks kinda similar?
