New Cambodian Gecko named

The gecko was first spotted in 2007 by a team comprising Dr Neang Thy, a senior research officer of the conservation group Fauna and Flora International (FFI) and other researchers from La Sierra University in California, led by Lee Grismer.

The olive-green gecko with white patches containing central black dots will be named Cnemaspis neangthyi, after Dr Neang Thy. Phnom Penh Post story and photo.
