The Paracas Gecko (Phyllodactylus angustidigitus)
is endemic to southern Peru, in the Paracas National
Reserve. The reserve covers areas on the mainland and
two separate islands.
The Paracas Gecko lives in sandy and rocky areas, staying
among the outcrops and crevices of rocks. They do tend
to group together in areas closer to shore though. They
eat small crustaceans, insects and spiders.
The small to medium sized Paracas Gecko grows to a
maximum length of about 6 cm. Unlike many other lizard
species, the female Paracas Gecko only lays one egg
at a time.
