Recent WA Museum-led research has described three new gecko species – the smallest geckos to be found in Australia.
Geckos are a type of lizard found in warm climates all over the world. There are about 1500 species of gecko worldwide, most of which are nocturnal and lack eyelids.
The Cape Range Clawless Gecko (Crenadactylus tuberculatus) is Australia’s smallest gecko, reaching just over 4cm in length, including the tail.
