Does anyone know how these 2 subspecies differ from Gekko Gecko? And does anyone have any pictures?

I don't think that there are any pictures of Azhari other than perhaps preserved specimens.

Gekko gecko gecko of course is the tokay, we all know.
Ethan is right, the only available pics of azhari show old preserved specimens.
The subspecies is said to look similar to G. reevesi in life.

Best regards

Thanks everyone. I have a question though..

If Gekko Gecko Gecko is the tokay, why is it listed as a subspecies of Gekko Gecko?

each subspecies needs a specific epithet. Even the nominat variant.

Take a look here at the Reptile Database. I use this to start my basic inquires.
