Marbled Velvet Gecko
Oedura marmorata

This gecko is named after the velvety feel of its body scales, which are soft, smooth and uniform in size. Despite its delicate appearance, this gecko survives in some of the driest parts of the country and may go without food or water for several months, living off reserves in its plump tail.

Distribution: discontinuous band from central New South Wales to Western Australia
Conservation status: not assessed
