While there are not that many, I have a few geckos to contribute...


Eublepharis macularius Blyth, 1854; Leopard Gecko. Yujin Lizard Pictorial Book 2002. It's the same sculpt as the PV version sbell posted further above.


Goniurosaurus kuroiwae (Namiye, 1912); Kuroiwa's Ground Gecko. Yujin Lizard Pictorial Book 2002. This is apparently an alternate paint version of the figure sauroid posted here.


cf. Hemidactylus frenatus Schlegel, 1836; Common House Gecko. Yujin Lizard Pictorial Book 2002. Possibly the same sculpt as the PV "Panther Gecko" sbell posted above.




Gekko gecko (Linnaeus, 1758); Tokay Gecko. Above: Safari Ltd (I think this is an early Incredible Creatures figure), cast from a real specimen and 290 mm long. Middle: Safari Ltd Translucents, stamped "Giant Day Gecko" but obviously the same sculpt as the preceding one. Below: Yujin Lizard Pictorial Book 2002.


Uroplatus lineatus Duméril & Bibron, 1836; Lined Leaf-tail Gecko. AAA, cast from an actual specimen.


Correlophus (formerly Rhacodactylus) ciliatus (Guichenot, 1866); Crested Gecko. AAA, cast from an actual specimen.


cf. Saltuarius (syn. Phyllurus) cornutus (Ogilby, 1892); Flat-tailed Gecko. K&M.

 :D Tokee!!
      Cool. I like the first Safari pic - makes me suddenly want that figure, but it's too big for my tastes.
      I love this animal, still waiting for a really good Japanese figure of it.

      I've never seen the AAA Crested Gecko before. It looks so ....... prehistoric ;D.

Well, it almost was... the species was thought to be extinct until it was rediscovered in 1994. I remember how it was mentioned in books in the early 90s that only museum specimens existed - and now it's one of the most popular geckos in the pet trade.

                                             Suddenly the white version became my favourite one :).

Wonderful new Gecko set! 8) I think the day gecko represents what today is Phelsuma grandis - this has been considered a subspecies of P. madagascariensis for a long time.

I have re-uploaded my pics in this thread.
Unfortunately a lot of Gecko pictures have been lost due to the Photobucket damage :'(.
It would be great if as many as possible could be brought back.

                  :)  Here's another small bronze Gecko from Queensland by Pete Smit.
                                                             Now I have two.
                                  I hope to find a third one on my next Australia trip.
