The Marlborough Region is rich with lizard species, and I managed to catch up with a couple of them this past spring while staying with friends on their high country station.
The Marlborough mini is a small brown gecko, and like many of our native lizards it has not yet been formally described as a species. Many of our skinks and geckos are very similar in appearance, and the true diversity of our lizards is still being unravelled.

I was a little unprepared when I found these lizards (the joys of flying and luggage restrictions), and didn’t have with me some of the gear that I’d normally use in that situation. Still, I managed to improvise and make a few photos that I think were worthwhile.
