And just for fun, this Cape Dwarf Chameleon which lived in my garden in Cape Town.

Sorry for some bad pics, all were taken with my phone.

1 . Is actually a Skink not a gecko. I would say A red Sided skink.
2 .Marbled Leaf-toed Gecko - Afrogecko porphyreus. Extremely common gecko in the Western Cape often around homes.
3. Pachydactylus maculatus - Spotted Thick Toed gecko - These are pretty common throughout SA.
4. Pachydacylus austeni - Austens Dune Gecko. These are very special geckos a very good find!

Great finds, that Dwarf chameleon is a nice looking one too.

Thanks fooble.
Yeah, I know the first one isnt a gecko, just put this topic in the gecko thread as most are geckos.
Thought that last gecko would be something special.
