Middle Eastern Short-fingered Gecko - Stenodactylus doriae 
The threat posture of this Middle Eastern Short-fingered Gecko, scientifically named Stenodactylus doriae (Gekkonidae), stretching its legs and raising the tail is an excellent attempt to impress their predators, because despite being small, with its 8.3 cm length he really looks menacing.
Stenodactylus doriae is the largest of the desert-dwelling sand geckos (genus Stenodactylus) found in the United Arab Emirates. This species is well-adapted to its desert habitat, with eyes bordered by large scales to protect from sand while burrowing, and flattened toes, with a projecting fringe of long scales, to increase surface area contact with the loose substrate.
Active at night, the Middle Eastern Short-fingered Gecko is most commonly encountered walking slowly across the desert sands, body raised high off the ground on its long legs. Prey mainly comprises insects and arachnids, which are caught by active pursuit or by remaining still and using an ambush strategy. As prey is located by sight, this gecko is usually more active on moonlit nights.
The species occurs in Iran, Iraq, Israel, Jordan, Oman, Saudi Arabia, United Arab Emirates, and Yemen.
