Auckland Green Gecko

Shown here in black and white – this is an Auckland Green Gecko (Naultinus elegans elegans), on display at the Arataki Visitor Centre. They are part of the native fauna of the Waitakeres, but I have yet to sight one in the wild, even though I live in the midst of kanuka trees, one of their favourite haunts.

For more black and white images check out Dragonstar’s Weekend in Black and White.

    An eeerie but fascinating little creature. It looks pre-historic.

    I remember Geckos from living in Malaya, probably not green ones. My father used to throw rolled up socks at them – no TV then.
