Gecko (F. Gekkonidae) being scavenged by Weaver Ants (Oecophylla smaragdina)
Pulau Semakau, 16th December 2008

The gecko could have belonged to either one of the following species, which have been recorded from Pulau Semakau:

Spiny-tailed House Gecko (Hemidactylus frenatus)

Spotted House Gecko (Gekko monarchus)

Flat-tailed Gecko (Hemidactylus platyurus)

Four-clawed Gecko (Gehyra mutilata)

Maritime Gecko (Lepidodactylus lugubris)
