TIMOR-LESTE (Dili Distr.)

 


TIMOR-LESTE REPTILE & AMPHIBIAN SURVEY
ATAÚRO AHOY!

The team caught Common house gecko (Hemidactylus frenatus), Tokay gecko (Gekko gecko) and Bent-toed gecko (Cyrtodactylus sp.). We have discovered two species of Cyrtodactylus on Ataúro during previous visits, one on the coast and one at the top of Mt Manucoco, the highest point on the island. Both are, we believe, new to science.
