Coromandel striped-gecko – a rare find

A couple of Friday’s ago I was all set for a day in the office, however, about ten minutes in I received a phone call about how somebody had made an exciting discovery.

They had found a Coromandel striped gecko, an elusive creature which still poses a lot of questions. Things like population size and distribution are unknown, even basic life-history traits are still under study. Due to the lack of sightings they are assumed to be rare, albeit the species are very cryptic, so nobody has a definitive answer.

As you can imagine, we were all super-excited to hear about the discovery and actually see the gecko. I’ve been ticking off a lot of “firsts” recently and this was a big one. It actually led to my first encounters with several other species too. The striped gecko was released into the care of a herpetological expert who also looks after a range of other lizard species. I was particularly impressed with the size of the Duvaucel’s gecko.

I’m so privileged to have the job that I do!

    I’ve been browsing online more than three hours today, yet I never found any interesting article like yours.
    It’s pretty worth enough for me. In my opinion, if all webmasters and
    bloggers made good content as you did, the web will be much more useful than ever before.

    Have you ever thought about adding a little bit more
    than just your articles? I mean, what you say
    is important and all. However imagine if you added some great
    graphics or videos to give your posts more, “pop”!
    Your content is excellent but with images and clips, this blog could definitely be one of the
    most beneficial in its field. Amazing blog!

    I was curious if you ever thought of changing the page layout of your
    website? Its very well written; I love what youve got to say.
    But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect
    with it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having 1 or two pictures.
    Maybe you could space it out better?
