Phelsuma Geckos of Madagascar

Unlike most geckos which are nocturnal, Phelsuma day geckos are diurnal lizards.

Day geckos are found in Madagascar and nearby islands, including the Comoros, Andamans, and Seychelles. They are often brightly colored and use body positioning and movement for territorial displays.

Day geckos feed mostly on insects, but also occasionally on fruit and flower nectar.

Day geckos are popular in the exotic-pet trade.
