The Northern House Dtella (Gehyra australis) is a very agile climber on most surfaces
Geckos in the Dtella genus (Gehyra) are often confused with the introduced Asian House Gecko (Hemidactylus frenatus)
which they sometimes live alongside, however Dtellas have smooth skin, whereas Asian house Geckos have small spines on their tail (unless it has been regrown) and tubercles (small bumps) on their bodies.
