dwarf gecko, Jaragua Sphaero

Jaragua Sphaero (also known as dwarf gecko) shares the record for smallest repitile with another repitile Virgin Islands Dwarf Sphaero. The Jaragua Sphaero measures 16-18 mm from the snout to the base of the tail and can fit on a US 25-cent coin. Its range is believed to be limited to Jaragua National Park in the extreme southwest of the Dominican Republic and the nearby forested Beata Island (Isla Beata)
