Hi

Found a couple of these little gecko,s on a farm around East London.
As far as I can see they are the spotted thick toed gecko.
This one is about 5 cm long.
Enjoy

He is nice! It's a boy. Well developed I might add. Pachydactylus oculatus.

Just pack it up and sent it to the USA!!! I'll take 10 ;-) haha!

Ken Bartenfeld - Are you sure about the scientific name ?

I'm no expert but what I can see Pachydactylus oculatus is the Golden
Spotted Thick-Toed Gecko which is a beige colour with reddish-brown spots.

Are you sure it's not Pachydactylus maculatus - Spotted Thick-Toed Gecko ?

Looking at the range Pachydactylus oculatus is also not found here.
