Crested Gecko, (Rhacodactylus ciliatus)

Rhacodactylus ciliatus, Eyelash Gecko or Crested Gecko, as they are most widely known, is a species of gecko native to southern New Caledonia. The specific name, ciliatus, is Latin: Cilia means “fringe” or “eyelash” and refers to the crest of skin over the animal’s eyes that resemble an eyelash

Crested Geckos were thought to be extinct until its rediscovery in 1994, on the Isle of Pines, a tiny island just off the coast of New Caledonia.
