Gecko (F. Gekkonidae)
Tampines, 4th August 2009

I discovered this gecko carcass in my bathroom. I’m not sure what happened to it.

It most probably belonged to one of the following species, which are commonly found in urban Singapore:

Spiny-tailed House Gecko (Hemidactylus frenatus)

Flat-tailed Gecko (Hemidactylus platyurus)

Four-clawed Gecko (Gehyra mutilata)

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)

There are several other species of gecko which might occur on the island as well, but which have yet to be conclusively documented:

Flat-tailed Gecko (Hemidactylus platyurus)

Four-clawed Gecko (Gehyra mutilata)

Maritime Gecko (Lepidodactylus lugubris)

I’m reminded of this video clip:
