Ptyodactylus guttatus (=P. lacazzi) (Spotted Fan-footed Gecko) [In Turk. Benekli Yelpazeayaklı Keler] (Male)

Today a handsome male spotted-fan footed gecko showing some paternal affinities to Ptyodactylus puiseuxi (Levant Fan-footed Gecko) that indicates hybridization between two species. I captured it while he was hidding between the rocks of the Palmyra ruins.

I would like to dedicate this posting to my dear friend, Cathy (CatherinD) who accompanied to me during the initial part of the last trip:) Hope you love this handsome gecko MF!

TFL and Have a nice WE!
Cheers,

Bayram hocam iyi geceler, bu güzel mişaronuza ilk yorumu ben yapayım. Eminim yine 60 puanı aşacak:)) Size meraklı gözlerle bakmış. Suriye'de hibridini bile bulmuşsunuz. Bulun artık şunu canım Türkiye'den. Selamlar,
Ömer.

Hi Bayram

Another great looking gecko from Syria. Nice POV and details. The foot morphology is very interesting and of course thos big eyes are just great.
Have a great weekend my friend.

Chris

Bayram hocam iyi geceler. Erkek gerçekten yakışılıymış. Siz onu çekerken o da sizi izliyrmuş:) Catherine hediye olacağını farkında değildi sanırım.:) elinize sağlık hocam. İyi geceler.
Bahadır

Teşekkür ederim sevgili arkadaşım!
Of course, I love this handsome guy, with his beautiful brown eyes and pretty smile :)
It seems that Palmyra was a great place for the ruins of course but also for the herptiles! About hybridization, it reminds me the strange frog we met in Ciglikara mts. So many thinks to study for you! İyi uykular ve tatli rüyalar,
Cathy

P.S. Sorry my friend...My number of :) are expired today. Buy for sure, I give you many :))))))

Bayram hocam merhaba,
Gerçekten de ayakları çok ilginçmiş, acaba vantuz türü bir şey mi?
Bu arada fotoğraf nefis, göz teması ve netlik çok iyi, emeğinize sağlık.
Selamlar

dayi erkek de erkek yani:) Cathy'e guzel hediye olmus.
eline ve emegine saglik. Iyi geceler.

Thats a wonderful capture of a beautifully camouflaged Gecko.
I like how the raised foot enables us to see the pads on its feet.

You remind me of my encounters with the Geckos that used to share my apartment with me in Riyadh, Prof Bayram. :)
This is another lovely capture of a Gecko from Syria hiding in a chink between rocks.
Well done and thanks for sharing this fresh image from your journeys abroad.
