General Description

Body brown to black with wide pale brown stripes across the body and tail. Up to 6 cm long (snout-vent).


Bynoe's Geckos move quickly across ground areas and shelter in fallen trees and under rocks. When present, they are often very abundant. They are nocturnal, foraging at night and feeding mainly on small insects. Females lay two hard-shelled eggs. There are known all-female parthenogenetic populations of Bynoe's Geckos in which the females are able to produce clones of themselves without males.


Mainland Australia.
