Lepidodactylus Lugubris(Mourning Gecko)
This small (10.5 cm total length), nocturnal gecko feeds on small insects and prepared diets. This species is notable because it is parthenogenic, and there are no remaining males that have been found. Females engage in pseudocopulation, stimulating both to produce viable eggs. These eggs are adhered to surfaces in protected locations. Most clutches consist of two eggs, and clutches are laid two to three weeks apart.
