This truly giant gecko reaches 35cm in length! Living in the crowns of dead rainforest trees, they feed at night, mostly on fruit.
New Caledonian Gecko have a remarkable range of calls – some loud and startling on still tropical nights. While large they can still be very hard to spot due to their camouflage. Can you find our gecko blending into its surroundings?
