The specimen above is from the Morgan Caravan Park (River Murray, South Australia)



This one is from the Breakaway Ranges, SA.

This is a common species over much of its range. Juveniles are usually more common than adults. Called a Barking gecko because it often squeaks when disturbed! The whole tail may also drop off in one piece. Regrown tails have less pattern and no tubercles. Pattern may also vary considerably even in one geographic area. Popular in the pet trade in some states of Australia.
