Andaman giant gecko by Tasneem Khan

As the sun descends over the pristine Andaman rainforests the magnificent Andaman giant gecko Gekko verreauxi, takes centre stage. A firm grip provided by toe-pads allows the reptiles to clamber over vertical tree trunks and even surprisingly smooth rocky outcrops with consummate ease. Its large eyes, equipped with full-colour vision, helps it locate unsuspecting prey on dark nights illuminated with nothing but star-light. This wide-angle image taken from close-quarters at sunset effectively captures the drama of gecko life in the wild as the predator readies for a night of hunting.
