The mitotic karyotype, chromosomal banding patterns and male meiotic chromosomes of Gekko gecko were studied in differentially stained preparations obtained from bone marrow and testes. A chromosome number of 38 was found with a heteromorphic chromosome pair in the male sex, which indicates a XX/XY-mechanism of chromosomal sex determination. The Y-chromosome was found to be larger than the X-chromosome.
