Southern Leaf-Tailed Gecko

Lizards Home > Library > In The Wild
 

The Southern Leaf-Tailed Gecko (Saltuarius swaini) is native to Australia. It is a very common gecko in that country, and tend to stay around the forests just north of Sydney. The area they inhabit is forested as mentioned, but also contains many sandstone outcrops.

Southern Leaf-Tailed Geckos grow to an average size of about 15-16 cm. They have fairly wide bodies and are shades of brown or dark grey. Their patterned bodies help with hiding, as they blend into trees very well when still. The Southern Leaf-Tailed Gecko is nocturnal, becoming active at night in search of food.
