Caption: Extremely sensitive to heat, the Palmato Gecko (pachydactylus rangei) only emerges after dark and remains active till dawn or on cool days. It lives underground in the dunes. It feeds on smaller insects and arachnids and is preyed on by dancing white lady spiders, hunting spiders and the sidewinding adder. Photographed in the Namib Desert near Swakopmund, Namibia, Southern Africa.
