Tarentola mauritanica


Gecko, adult
This cecko is found in the western part of the mediteranian and always at costal areas. It is the largest European gecko reahing up to 15 cm. It can be active all day and is often found sunbasking in the morning or near lamps on buildings at night, where it is hunting for insects.
Vi keep a group of these geckoes free in the reptile room. They prey on the insects and spiders that is living there and is newer fed. Since the temperture there is falling to 5-10*C in the winter, it is the best suited one for our conditions. They are rarely seen, but now and then they are found basking in the sun in the early morning or hunting at night all ower the room.
