TIMOR-LESTE (Lautem Distr.)

 


TIMOR-LESTE REPTILE & AMPHIBIAN SURVEY
WHEN THE CAT'S AT COM
(AND THE MICE ARE AT RAÇA)

Meanwhile when it got dark back at Com Hinrich and I went out to a limestong cliff-face location we knew was good for geckos. The moon was high and the area fairly floodlit so that probably contributed to few geckos being in evidence but we did see a large predatory Tokay gecko (Gekko gecko) and juveniles of two species of Bent-toed geckos (Cyrtodactylus spp.)
