Giant Gecko, Rhacodactylus leachianus

More commonly referred to as the Leachie gecko is the largest of the New Caledonian geckos. At 12-14 inches in total length, it is one of the largest, if not the largest, gecko in the world. R. leachianus is currently being evaluated for protected status by CITES. There are three recognized subspecies of R. leachianus: R. l. aubrianus, R. l. henkeli (first described by Seipp and Obst in 1994), and R. l. leachianus.

R. leachianus is a nocturnal arboreal species of gecko. It makes its home in the highest treetops on the island of New Caledonia. Its range includes all of the southern and eastern portions of the main island as well as several of the smaller islands in the group. This is a heavy bodied gecko with very loose skin and a small, stumpy tail. R. leachianus feeds on insects and fruit. It will also occasionally consume smaller lizards and in captivity and some may even eat newborn mice.
