Moko kākāriki, Auckland green gecko (Naultinus elegans)

Fine Art Reproduction
Signed edition of 100

The moko kākāriki is an endemic gecko species. There are thought to be over 100 endemic lizard species of Aotearoa and a great amount of variety exists within species. Many are at risk due to habitat loss and predation despite their great natural camouflage. Here the distinctive blue-purple toungue sweeps over the eye, a behavioural adaptation which compensates for lack of a natural eyelid.

This work was exhibited in the recent exhibition 'A Few' - the third installment in an ongoing series of natural history illustrations depicting native and resident species of Aotearoa, New Zealand - by Erin Forsyth. They exhibition took place at the TSB Wallace Arts Centre, Pah Homestead in Auckland October 30 - December 9.
