Tarentola mauritanica

Moorish Gecko - I came across this Gecko in Cabanas Portugal where they are quite widespread. Masters of camouflage. They stay low level as they prefer the warmer temperatures so are not really found in mountainous areas. It has big eyes and no eye-lids. They can hibernate if temperatures drop.
