Prickles just lay there on the pavement and did not mind at all when I lay down in front with my big (relatively) lens.
It only too a few moments to realise why this Prickly Geko (Heteronotia binoei) was not in any hurry. The pavement was freezing. Not exactly what a cold blooded reptile needs for being mobile.
How Prickles came to be stranded I don’t know but we took it inside for a while to warm up before letting it go in the garden.
