Letaka Safaris - The Herp Highway (1285 words)
While climbing amongst the rocks with the engravings, which is the type locality of one of the several species of Namib Day Geckos, (Rhoptropus ssp) there is a whole host of lacertids to look out for.
We take the track to Purros, where we will look for the local koakogecko (Palmatogecko vanzyli) and the tiny Namib day gecko Rhoptropus biporosus still survives on football sized rocks out an a plain.
Heading further and further into the wilderness area of the Koakoveld we move up past Orupembe to the barchan dunes where we look for the rather special sand swimming lizard, the Namib Plated Lizard Angolosaurus skoogi.
Re: [Gecko] Lygodactylus, and gecko phylogeny (503 words)
These geckoes really resemble eachother to me. Perhaps I am wrong i calling them a group, but certainly a relationship exists, maybe with more genera like Rhoptropus, Quendenfeltia, Ptyodactylus and Gekkonia.
Geckonia is a highly modified Tarentola, but I would have no problem including it in the genus..
It is believed a species evolved in Jamaica but it (albertschawrtzi) is known from a single museum specimen collected a century(?) ago.
