Wonderful shots, Kurt! That is a beautiful species and another that I would love to see someday. Was it up in a shrub/tree or on the ground? I think that they should live out at Taman Negara but so far, I have not had any luck there.

Regards,
David

Thank you, David. It was in shrub when we spotted it.

The next one on my list is Cyrtodactylus elok :)

Absolutely gorgeous, what is their food/prey item?

Beautiful animal, beautiful photos, as always, Kurt. I was just as enchanted with this species when I found my first one (roadcruised it, of all things!) Of course, your photos put mine to bitter shame, but my individual had a nice white splotch on the back :-) Can't ever get enough of these little guys! Incidentally, Indraneil Das's team at the Universiti Malaysia Sarawak here in Kuching thinks there's a second, undescribed species here in Borneo.

Thanks, guys!

Hans - how on earth did you spot a tiny gecko while road cruising? :D :roll:

LJ - they feed on small insects.

Not sure about the one you found, but this one was no more than 5 or 6 inches long.
