Caption: Web-footed gecko. View of a web-footed gecko (Palmatogecko rangei) on sand. This small gecko lives in the Namib desert in south-western Africa. It has webs of skin between its toes which help it run along loose sand. Its colouration is designed to act as camouflage amongst the dunes. Web- footed geckoes hunt small spiders and insects, and usually are only active at night to avoid the heat of the day. They run very fast, and hold themselves high above the ground as they do so. They themselves are preyed on by larger hunting spiders and snakes.
