What type of gecko is this?
Being a python and beardie owner, I'm not up to scratch on types of gecko's. My friend has a gecko that he is looking to sell but doesn't know what type it is. Can anyone identify this guy for me please?

barking/thick tailed no doubt
Is a barking thick tailed the same type or two different types?
Yeah, their common name is Thick-tailed Gecko (Underwoodisaurus milii) but they are also referred to as a barking geckoCheers, Sam
Awesome, thank you!
Is this specimen wild caught (poached)? Your friend should know what it is as he/she would have had to record it when it was purchased...Cheers, Sam
As my friend isn't licensed, then I believe he did get it from the wild. That being said, he's had it for a couple of years and hand raised it as it was tiny when he got it. I can promise you this - I've lectured him about getting a license and NOT taking things out of the wild!
I already told you this was a Thicktail when you asked me a few days ago?

Not to mention you just admitted it was wild caught so when some keyboard warrior find this thread they are going to start raging?
Personally I just think it's silly that if you know it's probably wild caught and think that's wrong you're helping him sell it? I mean it's not like I say you should be dobbing him in but helping him sell it is pretty different.Keeper, breeder and photographer of geckos.

Kelly I didn't see your response which is why I posted this! Far out, how about everyone has a go at me for asking a simple question.
I'm not encouraging anyone to take things out of the wild and I certainly don't think it's a good idea. I've told him to get his license and purchase things legally.
I wont bother asking a simple question any more. I don't wish to get my head ripped off nor do I need to defend myself! I do the right thing and everything I own is on a license. I cant do anything more than that
Yeah figured it would be a poached animal.. You shouldn't be helping him sell it, and don't say you're not because you have created an album in your profile stating otherwise...
You're a twit. I said that I'm not encouraging him to get animals from the wild. I know very well what I've posted.
Do you think it a great idea then that he kills it because he doesn't want it anymore? Or how about if he just lets it go into the wild when it has never fended for itself? You seem to have the answers for everything so surely you can answer this.
As it is, the animal was freakin "poached". The gecko originally belonged to someone who has a license. She gave it to my mate as she didn't want it anymore. She didn't care that he wasn't licensed. He no longer has contact with her so has no way to even find out her license details.
I knew that he got it young but as it turns out, it wasn't from the wild and I'd rather see it go to a good home than be killed by being put into the wild.
