    Northern Spiny Tail Gecko

    These hypnotic eyes belong to the Northern Spiny Tail Gecko, Strophurus ciliaris aberrans (Gekkonidae), a large gecko (up to 15cm long), endemic to western Australia. 

    As suggested by their common and scientific names, these geckos have two rows of large spines down the upper surface of the tail, and a row of small spines above the eye. In fact, Strophurus means ‘turning-tail’, and ciliaris ‘eyelashed’, in reference to the spines above the eyes.

    When molested, this gecko exudes a noxious sticky fluid from the glands in its tail.

    Fornasini’s Spiny Reed Frog

    Afrixalus fornasini (Hyperoliidae) is an african frog characterized by its color pattern, dark with broad light silverish dorsolateral bands from tip of snout to anus. The bands meet posteriorly, not anteriorly. About half the specimens in northern populations have the entire dorsum silverish white. 

    Specimen shown is a female, no stripe morph.

    The distribution recorded for this species is from coastal Kenya southward through eastern and southern Tanzania, Malawi, Mozambique and eastern Zimbabwe to coastal KwaZulu-Natal in South Africa.

    I visited Karosta in Liepāja (Latvia) on my trip to the seaside with my family. And let me tell you, I recommend visiting this area to everyone who seeks that abandoned, sorta creepy, nearly post-apo atmosphere. I tried to take as many shots I could to possibly use later for painting practice but I was too amazed at the town and military buildings that I only got out of it at the sea to take pictures of these ruins of guard posts. We even went into some of those which where were still left on land!
