Moorish Gecko (Tarentola mauritanica)
I saw three or four of these robust geckos early one morning walking around the small cruise ship port town of Katakolon. They were extremely wary; this was the closest shot I could get. These geckos are primarily nocturnal but they do bask in the sun when it's not too hot out.
