Gold Dust Day Gecko (Phelsuma laticauda laticauda)
Location: Kohala Coast, Big Island, Hawaii
This is the Gold Dust Day Gecko (Phelsuma laticauda laticauda) -- probably the most colorful lizard living in Hawaii. A couple of months ago I posted a macro image of a Gold Dust Day Gecko's face, so I thought it was time now for a 'full body' specimen shot. When you look at this photo, you will understand how these lizards got their common name, Gold Dust.
