Hello everyone,
some of you might have heard in the news recently that we have described a new species of Geckolepis from northern Madagascar, called Geckolepis megalepis. It was really amazing to see the global reaction to this new species.

You can get direct access to the paper here: https://peerj.com/articles/2955/
And I wrote a blog about the paper, and the media coverage of it, which you can see here: A new fish-scale gecko from Madagascar – Mark D. Scherz, MSc

Not every day that a gecko makes headlines! It was so wonderful to have so many people excited about a new species, though mostly it was about the 'ick' factor.
