hello Haraprasan
very nice picture with good details and nice pose of this Gecko
greeting lou

Ciao Haraprasan, great camouflage for this lovely creature, beautiful natural colors, fine details and splendid sharpness, very well done my friend, ciao Silvio

Namastay bhaijaan Hara,

This is realy awesome capture of a pretty beauty belonging to the genera Cyrtopodion (bent-toed geckonid lizards)consist of approx. 100 species. It looks like to C. scabrum (Keeled rock gecko, rough-tailed gecko ) in dorsal pattern and general body structure. It is also known from NE India. But your shot does not allow me to say exact id, since the structure of the scales on dorsum is not prominent. Sorry i could not give you more detailed info beyond of these MF!
TFS and have a nice night!

Hi Haraprasan,

A wonderful capture of this very well camouflaged Gecko. The colors are natural and the details are so excellent that he stands out well against the similar colors. He looks very much like the Geckos we have here in Arizona.


Muy bien captado el mimetismo. Interesantes luces y colores.

Gidday Hara !
What a cool Gecko is this ! Such amazing textures and colours, making a most effective camouflage.
It looks like a fast moving lizard.
Nice capture showing the camouflage really well.
Cheers & TFS

Hi Haraprasan

Silvio brings it to the point: the ability of camouflage of this animal is impressive and your picture reflects this evry well. I'm glad to notice that Bayram could help you for the ID.

Kind regards

Hi Haraprasan.
Very colourful and attractive scene. Both lizard and impressive stone are looked perfectly together. Similarity of colouration is stunning. Details of the reptile are exceptional and some blurriness of the BG is very nice too. Kind regards and TFS.

Hello Haraprasan,
excellent capture of this gecko. so lively to note its camouflaging ability on the rugged rock.
The view is so natural and the tail isso exciting to note. Well detailed and excellent composition.


nice camouflage, tfs

Dear Haraprasan,
Thank you for showing us this perfectly camouflaged Gecko.

I love a good story, and your photo presents definitely one.

Th ability of camouflage in nature fascinates me / and pretending to be somebody else as well.

I find it always quite difficult to focus and measure exposure in these cases, and you did very well to present such a clear image! Congratulations.

Have a nice week-end
Greetings from South africa
