    Here are some random photos of some of the lizards (Gekkota) in my collection. They are pretty bad photos...

    Carphodactylus laevis - chameleon gecko. This male was sleeping under a hide - yes, I am a terrible person for waking him up.

    Delma tincta - excitable delma.

    [​IMG]

    Lialis burtonis - Burton's legless lizard.

    [​IMG]

    Nephrurus stellatus - starred knob-tailed gecko.

    [​IMG]

    Oedura filicipoda - fringe-toed velvet gecko. A species, like most Oedura, that undergoes remarkable ontogenic change in their colouration and patterns throughout development. The first image shows a hatchling whilst the second image is about a month old. They are almost of adult size now.

    [​IMG]

    Pseudothecadactylus lindneri - northern giant cave gecko. These are rude, homicidal psychopaths.

    The following image offers some sense of scale.

    [​IMG]

    Pygopus lepidopodus - common scaly-foot. Absolutely massive geckos with attitude.

    [​IMG]

    Pygopus nigriceps - western hooded scaly-foot.

    [​IMG]

    Pygopus schraderi - eastern hooded scaly-foot. Dreadful photos.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Saltuarius cornutus - northern leaf-tailed gecko.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Saltuarius salebrosus - rough-throated leaf-tailed gecko.

    [​IMG]

    Strophurus elderi - jewelled gecko.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Underwoodisaurus milii - barking gecko.
