The Saba Least Gecko (Sphaerodactylus sabanus) is a gecko endemic to the Lesser Antilles in the Caribbean, where it can be found on Saba, Sint Eustatius, Saint Kitts, and Nevis.

Both sexes reach a maximum length of about 30 mm snout-to-vent. Its dorsal color is brown, and its head is tinted orange. Its ventral surface ranges from white to light brown, with a white or yellow throat. Its head is marked with dark stripes that extend from its snout that may break up into spots. It has a dark (or dark-bordered) spot on the back of its head, and its body and tail are usually covered with rows of paler, smaller spots.
