Paracas Gecko

Lizards Home > Library > In The Wild
 

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.

Take a look at these Paracas Gecko Pictures.
