I believe these are two male Lygodctylus luteopicturatus (spelling?). If someone can positively identify these that would be great. These guys are blinding fast. My eyes had a tough time keeping up when they would make sprints across the patio table. Diurnal geckos just seem so much more aware and their habits intentional.

Lygodactylus picturatus, adult male.

Brilliant pictures, and very healthy looking gecko.

Lovely geckos...nice pictures. You must be quick on the trigger :lol:

"Blindingly fast"! What an excellent description of their speed!!! I have sometimes wondered about my eyes when an escaped Lygodactylus kimhowelli has disappeared and I have not even blinked. I've had to guess where she might be next, and, so far, have been able to recapture these critters.

In my view, they are both males of L. luteopicturatus, picturatus have more black markings on the head. Beautiful specimens!
