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).
The Malaysia Forest Gecko is endangered in #Malaysia on @IUCNredlist due to #palmoil #deforestation and the #pet trade. Make art for this forgotten animal and #Boycott4Wildlife in the supermarketTweet
