Gecko (F. Gekkonidae)
Jurong, 23rd November 2010

This gecko carcass was found within a light fixture along a pathway. I presume that it entered the light fixture to feed on insects attracted by the light, only to be trapped and subsequently killed as a result of the intense heat given off by the light bulbs.

It most probably belonged to one of the following species:

Flat-tailed gecko (Cosymbotus platyurus)
Ecology Asia
Wildlife Singapore

Four-clawed gecko (Gehyra mutilata)
Ecology Asia
Wildlife Singapore

Spiny-tailed house gecko (Hemidactylus frenatus)
Ecology Asia
Wildlife Singapore
