This Madagascar Giant Day Gecko lives in the Destination Africa building of our zoo. In all the years that we have visited the zoo we have only spotted him a couple of times. My husband is always on the look out for him, but alas, usually this little fellow is nowhere to be seen.
I was extremely lucky when I visited the zoo on my own the other weekend as the gecko was right on the bottom of a pillar in the building. As I snapped away I realized that I was getting some strange looks from passers-by; it was obvious that they had not spotted him. Just a shame my husband wasn’t there to enjoy this elusive gecko, so this one is especially for him.
