This is the very first public photo of a new gecko species recently discovered in Laos by Dr. Peter Jäger and Thomas Calame during the making of the Wild Things in Laos with Dominic Monaghan! What a cutie. His name is now officially C. jaegeri, as published here: http://www.mapress.com/zootaxa/2014/f/z03760p066f.pdf

Earlier a new spider species was also confirmed to have been found by the team in Laos, and even named the Ctenus monaghani! Read more about that here

Congrats guys!
