Hemidactylus platycephalus — Flat-headed House Gecko
Some other names for this species:
Flathead Leaf-toed Gecko
This species is quite similar to the cosmopolitan Hemidactylus frenatus. The identities of various gecko populations in Madagascar hasn't been thoroughly studied, so this might end up being H. frenatus after all.
This pale and rather unappealing gecko was hunting down the local insect population at the Nosy Be airport snack bar.
