New Zealand Geckos are unique in that they carry their eggs inside their bodies and the young are born alive. Green geckos are omnivorous and active by day usually inhabiting forest or scrub. Naultinus species can be uniformly green, lime or yellow; or variously patterned with spots or stripes. Most species are vocal, communicating by chirps, chatters, clicks and squeaks. Each species occurs in localized areas throughout NZ.
