The geckos in this genus have vertical pupils, which typically signifies nocturnal behavior, but this species is generally considered diurnal. It's a very large gecko, probably the longest gecko from snout to tail tip that I've ever seen in the wild, including adult Tokay Geckos in Indonesia.
Here is a list of all the reptiles and frogs I saw on this trip to Madagascar.
