ROBUST VELVET GECKO Oedura robusta Boulenger, 1885
Found along the coast, ranges and nearby areas of northern NSW and Qld, this gecko attains 18 cm.
This mainly arboreal species is usually found during the day under loose bark on trees or rock crevices in rocky areas.
At night this species forages within close proximity of its' daytime abode.
Robust Velvet Geckoes commonly live and breed in human dwellings where they will often lay their eggs in cupboards, on shelves behind books, etc.
These eggs usually hatch apparently without problem, under these conditions. When first caught this gecko will sometimes bite it's aggressor, although the bite is only feeble and never even draws blood.
The above was from the book Australian Reptiles and Frogs by Raymond Hoser and now available on a fantastic CD-Rom along with a vast amount of other information, papers and the like on reptiles, frogs and other wildlife.
