Gold Dust Day Gecko
The Gold Dust Day Gecko is a spectacular lizard. It is 4 to 5 inches long. The lizard is totally iridescent with vivid bright colors. The base color is a bright green that tapers, as if airbrushed, to a bluish color at the feet. Sprinkled below the neck and on the tail are bright tiny specks of gold color. The upper side of the eye is a bright powder blue. On the nose and also in the center of the back are three reddish ovals and small reddish dots descend into the tail.
This gecko is an introduced species from madagascar through the pet trade, and competes with native insectivorous animals for food and habitat.
