Artist's Description

Natures sculpture,..this is the underside view of a shed skin from a Nephrurus wheeleri cinctus or Banded Knobtailed Gecko.

These are a terrestrial desert dwelling gecko who mainly eat insects are nocturnal or crepuscular in their foraging grow to 100mm from nose to vent, then a 2cm tail with a small knob at the end. These gecko like to flick sand over their bodies for camouflage and/or thermal regulation is the consensus with fellow breeders.

They lay clutches of 2 eggs at a time and can have up to 7 clutches per season in captivity with a good supply of food. In the wild this would be less I assume.

Some change colour at night and go a whiter base and still keep their dark banding from the day time pink/apricot colour (pics in profile)
