Nephrurus levis levis - Smooth Knob-tail Gecko
Another one of my favorite Australian geckos are Nephrurus levis geckos. These are sometimes referred to as "smooth skinned" knobtails as opposed to the "rough skinned" knobtails such as Nephrurus wheeleri or Nephrurus amyae. These geckos are kept a bit moister than their rough skinned cousins, and often burrow into moist sand or kick sand to close the opening of their hide to help preserve moisture. Like all the Nephrurus geckos, the big dark eyes and perpetually "smiling" appearance make these a very visually appealing gecko.
