I wanted to share a picture of a Lygodactylus mombasicus i found in Kenya

Particularly for "bugman426" who asked for some pics in the "Getting to know you (Introduction)"-Section.

It wasnīt an easy challenge to get a good pic of one of these speedy geckoes with a digital-compactcamera :wink:

Very nice specimen Andreas :)

Were they easy to find in general or rare?

Hi Jan,

they were really easy to find. I lay on a sun chair and relaxed while watching this geckoes climbing on trees and palms in our hotel garden :mrgreen:

But to take a picture was another thing ... :wink:

Cool picture! You really succeeded with this shot!! These animals have very interesting coloration. Did you bring some home?

Thanks for your comments!

I didnīt bring some home. I only took some pictures and had the chance to see some habitats of this geckoes and of L. kimhowelli (which i kept at that time) near the tanzanian border.

Do you have pictures of the natural habitat of L. kimhowelli?? I'm very interested in those! :wink:

I am really sorry, but it seems that i did not take any picture of the natural habitat of L. kimhowelli, at least no digital pictures :cry:
Maybe i have some slides of the natural habitat. But then i will not be able to share them with you, because i do not have a scanner :(

The good thing is, that i have a reason to go to Kenya one more time :wink:
