Malayan Forest Gecko Cyrtodactylus pulchellus

Endangered

Malaysia (Peninsular)

The Malaysian Forest Gecko is a nocturnal and scansorial species that lives in granite rock-forest (Grismer et al. 2012). Occasionally animals will opportunistically utilize nearby vegetation and the outer walls of buildings (L. Grismer and E. Quah pers. comm. 2017).

Continued collection of the Malaysian Forest Gecko for the pet trade poses a threat to their survival, as does continued hill side development for housing and agriculture on this heavily-developed island (L. Grismer and E. Quah pers. comm. 2017).
