Geckos in Malaysian caves

I sometimes see gecko eggs in caves in Malaysia, and much less often, see the actual gecko.

Geckos are commonly seen in houses in Malaysia, where they are called cicaks, due to the call that they make.

The cave geckos belong to the genus Cyrtodactylus, commonly known as bent-toed geckos.

These geckos were seen in caves in Perlis

Update :

3 new species of gecko have been found in and around Merapoh caves by Dr Lee Grismer. See article in The Star on 3 Sept 2013, "In search of herps".
