Black Spotted Least Gecko (Sphaerodactylus nigropunctatus intermedius) is a small sexually dimorphic diurnal gecko species found on the Caribbean islands of Cuba and the Bahamas. They are incredibly sexually dimorphic with the males being grey with black spots and the head and tail are orange, there is some variation in the number and spread of the black speckling depending upon the island population where the animals originated. The females have a beige background with black banding and white speckles between some of the bands on the body. The juveniles exhibit similar colouration to the females. They are a semi-arboreal species found in humid to semi-arid habitats. Very seldom seen in captivity, these will make an excellent addition to any gecko enthusiasts collection.
