Day geckos can be found in East Africa and some south pacific islands but the vast majority are native to Madagascar. They range in size from less than 10cm to over 30cm; one extinct species (Phelsuma gigas) from Rodriguez Island near Mauritius was one of the largest gecko species ever known. 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). "Madagascan day geckos" are one of the largest living species of day gecko and are a popular pet species due to their bright colours and active nature. They are very fast and not suitable for being handled.
