Greece's largest Gecko
The Moorish Gecko (Tarentola mauretanica) is the largest and least common gecko of Greece. Found in southern Greece and a few of the islands, including Crete, this gecko can be easily seen in walls of houses and other man-made habitats. Larger than the Turkish Gecko, the Moorish can be also told by its feet that have almost no toe-tips extending.
