    Possibly a Lesueur's Velvet Gecko, or a Tree Gecko. Heck maybe even a Beaked Gecko. It's hard to tell from the photo... anyway; I really have no idea. :p

    Haha, Mr.Bredli & I both had the same opinion. :p

    Umm, Beaked Geckos aren't found in the Western Sydney area.......

    I put my money on O.lesueurii.

    Def Christinus marmoratus, not native to the Sydney Region, It should be handed into the nears parks and wildlife office.

    Cheers,
