Chinese - Tigergecko




This Goniurosaurus  species was discovered in Guoshanyao Village, Yingde in the Guandgong province in China in 2009.  It  was first described in 2010 and the scientific investigation showed that one had  found a new species. It received the name 'Goniurosaurus yingdeensis' according to its place of origin. It probaby belongs to the  Luii group due to its size, which is about 20 cm, and its slim body shape. The newly hatched animals are black/brown with thin white lines, which they will keep all their lifetime  in contrast to other species belonging to the Luii group. The tail has many noticeable white rings, which is another feature of this particular species.
