Goniurosaurus catbaensis

September 27th, 2009

Is it just me, or does this newly-discovered variety of leopard gecko look like something that should be starring in a low-budget horror movie?

You know the sort of film: in the opening scene, some luckless bastard with very few lines stumbles on their lair and before he can react he finds himself buried under a swarm of carnivorous1 reptiles.

Next thing you know, they've acquired a taste for human blood and a wave of them is sweeping down on the nearest town…

  1. According to Wikipedia, although leopard geckos primarily subsist on a diet of insects, they can and will eat mice if they can manage to bring them down.
