Caption: Ocellated gecko (Pachydactylus geitje). Several geckos are called ocellated, referring to a phase they go through when their skin appears spotted. This gecko is in its 'spotted' phase. Colouration and patterns like this prevent the gecko from being seen by predators. Geckos are small lizards that feed on insects. They have pads on their feet, enabling them to climb vertical surfaces. Geckos are found in tropical and sub-tropical climates. Photographed in Uniondale, South Africa.
