    Hi,

    I just wanted to share two stunning pictures of H. rakiurae. In my opinion one of the most beautiful species in the world. Not many people have seen this pictures so enjoy:

    Hi Thomas,

    no sadly I did not take these pictures myself. I haven't been to Stewart Island yet but planning to go in the future and then hopefully be able to take some shots of these beauties.

    Regards,

    Chris

    Aren't they the southern most geckos in the world, living only on the south half of Stewert Island? I tell you what I might just sell my soul to the devil for a pair of those.hehe

    Hi Patrick,

    yes, their habitat is is quite hard to reach (which is good for the animals I think!!!). I think it would be nearly impossible to keep this species alive in captivity (just think of how to simulate the climate in their habitat), so it's better that they stay where they are ... Anyway enjoy the pics and you're always allowed to dream .

    hello, a great specimen, thanks for sharing the pictures with us.
    yes this is a very interesting species, but as you already said it would be better to let them in their nature habitat.
    regards stefan
