|Spotted Rock Gecko|
Habitat & Distribution
Snout somewhat pointed. Forehead with large scattered scales. Back with 15-20 rows of tubercles. Ventrals smooth. Fingers and toes with divided scansors. Males are with 19-25 femoral pores. Mental scales are as long as wide. Dorsum grayish brown, with black blotches that are expanded into rhomboidal marks. Two dark streaks found along the eyes. Venter unpatterned creamy colored.
Ecology & Diet
Inhabits rocky outcrops, including caves and cracks in boulders, and more rarely on walls of buildings and on trees. In the former microhabitat, it was sympatric with Calodactylodes illingworthorum, but timing of activity is more at dusk, than largely diurnal habit of Calodactylodes illingworthorum. Diet comprises small insects, although others geckos are also known to be eaten.
2 eggs are produced at a time measuring 10 * 12mm in March and August. Hatchlings measure 33m.
