Heteronotia spelea (Desert Cave Gecko)

IUCN Status: Not assessed.

We found this beautiful gecko on the road while spotlighting at night in WA.

Unfortunately he's got a regenerated tail, which doesn't have the same patterning. While regen tails on some lizards have almost identical patterning to the original, most have much more muted patterning, or no patterning (like this individual).
