Kimberley Knob-tail Gecko

ANIMAL PORTRAIT

Geckos are known throughout Asia as noisy roommates. Australia’s geckos are also capable vocalists.
I was alerted to this Kimberley Knob-tail Gecko (Nephrurus sheai) by a loud bark and, as I bent down with my camera, it briefly performed its threat display. This was quite rare – these geckos usually scurry away to safety.
