Close-up of a Knuckles Bent-toed Gecko
First we hiked up a long trail to the top of some rocky cliffs, and peered over various death-defying precipices looking for this species. We found one and got medium-distance photos. Then we hiked back to our car, parked in the visitor center parking lot, and found this one on the wall of the visitor center.
