Beaked Gecko

Lizards Home > Library > In The Wild
 

The Beaked Gecko (Rhynchoedura ornata) is natively found in the central regions of the Australian continent. They prefer to stay away from coastal areas, and as such are not found on the outer portions of the country.

The Beaked Gecko is a nocturnal species of lizard, hunting through the desert regions of Australia once the sun goes down, looking for their favorite food; termites.

Beaked Geckos are small geckos, growing to a maximum length of about 5 cm. Their skin is brown with a red tinge to it, and are covered in small spots ranging from yellow, brown and white in color.

In parts of Australia, most notably Victoria, the Beaked Gecko is an endangered species. Paperwork and proper licenses are required to own a Beaked Gecko.
