The Cameroon Dwarf Gecko (Lygodactylus conraui) is a small diurnal gecko species that is very closely related to the infamous William's Blue Gecko. Day geckos are unique in behaviour as like the name suggests they are diurnal (active during the day) unlike most geckos which are most active during the night (nocturnal) or at dawn and dusk (crepuscular). Cameroon geckos are one of the smaller species. They have some of the brightest colouration for any gecko and live well in small groups (1 male only per group). Their active nature and bold behaviour makes them some of the most sought after of all gecko species. They are very fast and not suitable for being handled.
