Crested Gecko (Rhacodactylus ciliatus)

  • Native to Southern Grand Terre, New Caledonia and at least one small surrounding island (Isle of Pines)
  • Crested Geckos are semi-arboreal, spending most of their time in small trees and low shrubs
  • They often seek out hiding places near the ground to sleep during the day
  • Has a prehensile tail and is nocturnal
  • Often referred to as an “eyelash gecko” or a “crestie”
  • They do not have eyelids, but instead clean their eyes with their tongues
  • This species of gecko cannot grow its tail back
  • They can climb smooth, vertical surfaces with the use of the lamellae on their toes. They also have another lamellae pad on their prehensile tail that helps them when they are jumping from branch to branch
  • Some Crested Geckos are very vocal and may make barking or squeaking noises
