Diplodactylus ornatus — Ornate Gecko
We found this gecko while night-driving on the paved ocean overlook roads in Kalbarri National Park. This was our first evidence that not all of the numerous geckos we were seeing were Soft Spiny-tailed Geckos.
Here is a complete list of the reptiles and frogs I saw on this trip to Western Australia.
A few nights later, we saw another of these on the road that cuts across the Peron Peninsula, between Monkey Mia and Denham.
