Viper gecko

Viper gecko

Viper-Tail geckos are a small species of lizard with hatchlings measuring one inch and adults measuring three and a half inches. They have a light-brown and grey base with darker lines running down the body. A cream colour overlaps some of the markings giving the viper gecko excellent camouflage. They have large eyes to help them see in the dark which is helpful since they are an endangered species. Another name is the Carrot-Tailed Viper Gecko due to the shape of the gecko's tail. Viper geckos are found in a small area of southern Pakistan where they hide under rocks during the day until the temperature cools down. Vipers have not been well-established in the pet industry, but are growing steadily with more and more online pet stores having them available for purchase
