Informative[edit]

This page is very informative. I found lots of information that was useful.Goblyglook (talk) 03:52, 2 February 2008 (UTC)

Duplicate?...[edit]

The article of the subspecies is EXACTLY the same as the species, except for the taxobox. Why is this? What's going on here? Pililoni - AKA Little Blue Penguin (talk) 17:40, 1 February 2010 (UTC)

Oh, I'm so stupid, it's a redirect. But, why does the species name redirect to the subspecies? If the species has only one subspecies, which's name is the same as the species, shouldn't this article be of the species? Pililoni - AKA Little Blue Penguin (talk) 17:43, 1 February 2010 (UTC)

This page shuld say if it is an Invasive species to any of the islands it mentions but it doesn't so its not useful..

File:Phelsuma-laticauda-Saint-Denis.JPG to appear as POTD soon[edit]

Hello! This is a note to let the editors of this article know that File:Phelsuma-laticauda-Saint-Denis.JPG will be appearing as picture of the day on December 23, 2011. You can view and edit the POTD blurb at Template:POTD/2011-12-23. If this article needs any attention or maintenance, it would be preferable if that could be done before its appearance on the Main Page so Wikipedia doesn't look bad. :) Thanks! howcheng {chat} 18:40, 22 December 2011 (UTC)

Gold dust day gecko
The Gold dust day gecko (Phelsuma laticauda) is a diurnal species of day gecko native to Madagascar and the Comoros, although it has been introduced to Hawaii and other Pacific islands. It grows to about 15–22 cm (6–9 in) in length and is bright green or yellowish green with rufous bars on the snout and head, and red bars on the lower back.Photo: Thierry Caro


Distribution[edit]

I suggest that the described range is fictitious. They are very common in the Tamatave area, and I would suspect the range is similar to:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Phelsuma_madagascariensis_madagascariensis#Distribution

There could be some better range delineation for this animal.

minimum temperature?[edit]

Does anyone know (have documentation of) the minimum temperature Phelsuma laticauda can tolerate? philiptdotcom (talk) 03:33, 11 September 2013 (UTC)

Can this photo be incorporated into article?[edit]
