Prickly knob-tailed gecko

My favourite member of Australia's endemic gecko genera, Nephrurus. This species has a reputation of being hard to track down owing to its seemingly disjunct Queensland range. This specimen was found late on a humid night, she was prowling in heathland habitat in the far north of the Cape York peninsula.
