S. elderi

 

 

Strophurus elderi is probably one of the most rarely kept representatives of this genus. Even though its color and pattern are a real treat for the eyes. This animal really deserves the byname “jewelled gecko”. Next to Strophurus taeniatus and S. jaenae S. elderi is by far one of the smallest Strophurus exemplars. It exclusively inhabits areas overgrown by spinifex.
