DAY 13 (18 APR) – Moorish gecko (Vejer de la Frontera, Spain)

This little guy appeared on our wall this afternoon and helpfully froze in situ while I fetched my phone.

He turns out to be a tarentola mauritanica or Moorish gecko – also known as a crocodile gecko because of his tail.

They are common in Spain, Italy and North Africa. But advice is they are nervous so should not be handled. I wasn’t tempted… but cute feet.
