Ornate Day Gecko

Say hello to the ornate day gecko.

Hobbies include leaping around in search of insects, eating overripe fruit, lapping up nectar from tree blossoms and finding smooth leaves to sunbathe on.

These cute little critters can only be found in Mauritius – they’re pretty shy, speedy and only 12cm long, so you’ll need to keep your eyes peeled if you hope to spot one during your stay on our island.
