Hey all! Recently got a new gecko after falling in love with his colours/pattern, but I’m not sure what type he is. The shop owner said he was told it was from America/south America and was possibly a type of banded gecko but when I searched online mine wasn’t quite the same. Any help would be much appreciated! Thanks richard

It does seem to be shaped like a banded gecko. Do an image search for Coleonyx elegans and see what you think. I think the tail is regrown and may not look like the original tail, so pay more attention to the body of the ones you find in the images.

It is a northern velvet gecko (Oedura castelnaui) from Australia and I bet you made a pretty good deal on it.
Hey and thanks for the reply, after having a look online he does look a lot like the northern velvet gecko. And yeah I did get the poor little guy cheap. Can’t actually find any for sale atm after a quick little look. Are they very common over here or a little rare? Thanks richard

I am not sure as I am not in USA. I think they are not rare but definately not that common. I think you can find them avaliable, but just if you find the breeders.
