Cat gecko – Aeluroscalabotes felinus Günther, 1864 – of south Sarawak / Borneo – around 200m ASL
Aeluroscalabotes felinus Günther, 1864 is named after its habit of curling its tail like a cat when resting. These geckos are very common and highly variable in Borneo. As a member of the Eublepharidae family, it lacks the toe-pads on its fingers typical of geckos, but as an adaptation to their arboreal lifestyle, they use their tail as a grasping organ and can oppose their claws. Cat geckos feed mainly on small arthropods.
