The nocturnal, terrestrial. S. doriae is common on sands at Hazeva, Wadi'Arava, Israel. Asking whether and how its activity changed during the lull lunar eclipse of 17/X/1986, we recorded gecko activity by two methods, dividing each night into two-hour periods. Bouskila el al.(15-19X) counted tracks on a cleared 30/m sand strip : tracks were significantly fewer In the two darkest hours (eclipse) than in other periods of the same night or the same periods of other nights.
