Lepidodactylus listeri, commonly known as Lister's Gecko or the Christmas Island Gecko, is a species of gecko endemic to Christmas Island. It is named after naturalist Joseph Jackson Lister.
Description and Habitat
Lister's Gecko is a brown lizard growing to 5 cm. It has a broad, pale fawn/grey vertebral
stripe which expands to cover the top of the head and matches the colour and pattern of the tail, and a whitish belly and body covered with small, smooth scales.
It was most abundant in primary rainforest on the plateau, but also occurred in disturbed secondary forest growth. It is absent from mined areas on the island.
