Coromandel striped-gecko – a rare find

Conservation work, Species Add comments


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!
