I have not seen gecko's like this in ages up here in the northern suburbs. Great to see they still around up here.

Tonight's little guy, don't know species/scientific names, if you know the names let me know.

And then this one was in a Fourway's garden, also don't know species/scientific name, if different from the above.

I think the Pachy is rather P. affinis.

And the Lygodactylus is likely L. capensis.

The first could be affinis, difficult to say with my knowledge.
