So yesterday's mystery beastie was neither armadillo nor aye-aye but it did begin with 'A'.
This is Aristelliger lar. It emerged from the roof of our hotel restarant and shocked the hell out of me. Why? Well its frankly the biggest gecko I've ever seen. At least equal to the giant tokays that terrorised my shower in Perhentian, Malaysia. This thing was pushing 12 inches long and built like a brick outhouse and yet it was still able to walk up vertical walls without any bother.
Of course when I hunted it down with my camera later it was less cooperative hence the shots here.
