The Kalahari Ground Gecko is found on the flat sandy areas of the northern Cape. It requires a bit of vegetation to give it cover.

It is a small creature which rarely reaches a length of 10 cm.

The Kalahari Ground Gecko has a fat tail which makes up for about half of its length.

These reptiles eat small insects such as grasshoppers and termites.

The female lays two eggs.
