your dollar store gecko looks like an anole...was it labeled as a gecko? Could be a mis-labeling in conjunction with an AAA/Playvisions knockoff?

I honestly don't know what it is, just a lizard that's kind of gecko-y.

It was brought up before in the Species Identification thread. It could be gecko, tegu, anole...maybe none of those. It's not high quality.

But does anyone have guesses on the UK Yowie?

 :)  Bronze Gecko by Pete Smit (Queensland / Australia)
                    (I'm not sure which species exactly Pete had in mind doing it)

Sorry, sbell. Species is not named.

But someone must have a guess! I kind of thought 'sand gecko' for some reason at one point, not sure why (maybe the base substrate?).

But given the heavy plates on the back, it looks less like a gecko than that bin figure!

Must have CapsuleQ Museum Leopard Gecko set... especially Uroplatus phantasticus! 8)
Considering the Gecko by Pete Smit - while I don't know if this was the intention the tail looks quite fat. There are several Australian gecko species which store fat in their tails. For example, the Velvet Geckoes, genus Oedura look a little similar. Oedura literally means "fat tail".

Hi everybody.
I'm Kevin from Belgium and new here on the Animal Toy Forum.
I'm mostly active on the DTF but when postsaurischian told me abouth this topic and asked me to join the conversation and post some pictures i told him i would.., so here i am. :)

Me and my girlfriend maintain a rather large collection of gecko's, not toy's but live ones, so i'm going to post some photo's here for reference. Hope that's okay...  ^-^

Let's start with this one as i see it doesn't even look close to it's plastic counterpart and the owner of the toy also got the scientific name wrong... ;)

Paroedura picta, female from Madagascar.


And we also keep the most rare of the Paroedura genus...

Paroedura masobe, breeding pair.



I sadly don't have enough time to upload all of them now but many more will follow.., next up will be our pretty large collection of Uroplatus species.

Hope you guy's like them. :)
Grtz.

The panther (AKA pictus) gecko is the name on the belly, but yes, it looks nothing like one. Not every Play Vision figure was perfect! Not sure what it's supposed to be though.

And nice real geckos--it's been years since I kept any live ones.

Thank you. :)

I must say i have no idea myself, can't think of any species right now that resembles these collorations.

Abouth the name, it was propably manufactured before the name was changed so that's why it says pictus, the same with the Phelsuma madagascariensis grandis, wich is now split up into P. madagascariensis madagascariensis and P. grandis;)

It is a figure from some time ago--at least 15 or 20 years, so yes, the names may not always line up.

And especially with their fish and reptiles, Play Visions could get rather...creative...with colouring. Although their most extreme may be the Binturong model. An animal that is usually a fairly uniform brownish colour became cream coloured with purplish spots, legs and tail.

I can't be 100% sure since I don't have the PV lizards, only their Yujin counterparts, but it seems to me the Yujin version of this "Panther Gecko" is stamped "House Gecko" (probably Hemidactylus frenatus, the tail has a slightly stronger bend to the left so I'm not sure if it really is the same sculpt but it looks very much like it). I recently took some photos of my Yujin lizards so I should upload some of the geckos here...

EDIT: Oh, and Uroplatus, your photos are brilliant and it was a good idea to post a picture of a real Paroedura picta here for comparison. :) If you want to show your entire collection of geckos, go ahead, I'd just recommend opening a thread in the Animals or General section.

Thanks for the food for thought :).
I've just checked an Australian reptile encyclopedia and my guesses would be either Oedura marmorata (which is the most variable and widely distributed member of its genus) or Oedura monilis.

Considering the shape of it's tail, but even more the shape of the feet and toepads , and it being Australian, i'm pretty sure you guy's are correct that it's a species of Oedura.
I'm usually pretty good at identifying gecko's but with this bronze color i'm afraid determening the exact subspecies is neir to impossible...
Gehyra variegata could be possible as well, but is much lesser known to the general public than the velvet gecko's so i don't think it's supposed to be one of those.
Just my two cent's... :)
