Cochran's Croaking Gecko

Lizards Home > Library > In The Wild
 

As this Geckos name suggests, the male Cochran's Croaking Gecko (Aristelliger cochranae) makes loud croaking noises when courting females during mating season. This lizard is also known as the Navassa Gecko.

These nocturnal geckos are endemic to Navassa Island near Jamaica, where they stay in the branches of ficus trees hunting insects. Cochran's Croaking Gecko is related to another croaking lizard, the Jamaican Croaking Lizard.

Cochran's Croaking Gecko is considered a medium sized gecko, reaching average lengths of 5.5 cm. Their color ranges from a light tan or beige to a deep brown-red with lighter spotted coloration on their backs, and a dark brown to black tail. When freshly born, they have white colored bands across their tails.
