Bavay's Giant Gecko, also called variations of the New Caledonian Mossy Prehensile-tailed Gecko, is native to southern New Caledonia east of Australia and to a couple of other small islands in the group. It is nocturnal and tree-dwelling, with a mossy-looking surface and prehensile tail. It can grow to a length of a foot (30 cm, half of which is tail). Its two eggs fuse together after laying and the mother watches over tham until they hatch.
