‘Extinct’ gecko rediscovered in India

Jeypore Ground gecko found after 135 year absence

March 2013. In 1877, Colonel R. H. Beddone collected an unusual looking gecko in the Jeypore Hills in the Indian state of Orissa. The gecko turned out to be a new species, the Jeypore ground gecko (Geckoella jeyporensis). That was the first and last time any scientist saw a member of this species for 135 years.

In 2009 some scientists from the Indian Centre for Ecological Sciences and the Bombay Natural History Society set out to look for the gecko, and, after 3 years, successfully managed to relocate the species.
