The Rough Knob tailed gecko is a small species native to arid regions in Australia. There are several different species of knob tailed that all share the same small ‘ball or knobble’ on the tip of their tail for which the purpose isn’t clearly understood although it may act as a lure or distraction as they will often wiggle it rapidly when hunting. Like many of the Australian gecko species they have always been rare and expensive but thanks to continued efforts by specialist gecko breeders they are growing in popularity. They are a small charming species that is full of character and able to vocalise both a ‘chirp’ and a ‘growl’ if startled but are not known for being aggressive.
