Ethiopia ID's

Dear all,

a friend of mine has been in Ethiopia recently. Her main goal were birds, but she also photographed some critters :-)

As far as I have no idea of the species there (and also no book about this region at home), I would be really glad if you could help me out with the identification :-)

So here they are (all pics (c) A. Klamm):

Both tortoises are Stigmochelys pardalis but I can't help with the rest.

The croc you already know and the first gecko is Tarentola annularis.

Second gecko is Hemidactylus sp. and skink is Trachylepis sp. I have species level guesses for these two and most of the others as well but that's just what they are - guesses, so I won't bother you with them.

Here's a site you might find useful to do s little research yourself: http://www.reptiles-of-ethiopia-and-eritrea.com/
