Artist's Description

Photos taken with Canon IXUS 80 IS and minor editing with Lightzone. SIMPLICITY is my niche!
My brother’s backyard in Tambourine Mtn QLD Australia

The Southern Leaf-tailed Gecko (Saltuarius Swaini) has rough, scaly skin and a brown or grey, mottled pattern that resembles the sandstone habitat where it lives. They can grow up to about 15 cms, but this little guy was about 12 cms in length. Here, he has wedged himself between the brickwork and blends in very nicely with the mortar.

They live in urban areas and coastal sandstone heath, and are known to enter garages and houses in urban areas. They feed at night and shelter during the day in crevices or under rocks. When threatened or attacked, the tail is discarded for an escape to safety. Another tail then re-grows and the missing tail will decompose. If you ever have the opportunity, try to look at them through a macro lens. They are truly awesome little critters that will take your breath away!
