This species is sometimes called the Southern Leaf-tailed Gecko, which is also the common name for Saltuarius swaini

This sometimes communal species (living and nesting) is a rock dweller which lives in crevices. It is often found in stone and brick buildings.

Besides insects and similar foods it sometimes eats smaller geckos.
