    What country is it from, and what habitat did you find it in/near?

        You defintely get Cyrtopodion scabrum in Dubai, and looking at your pictures it does seem to have the distinctive keels and lregular spots, which combined with the bodyshape defintely point towards a Rough tailed Bow foot gecko.

        I think the lack of banding on the tail means its lost its tail at some point and has regrown it.

         

        Here are lots of comparison pictures on Arkive

         

        I am rather envious, as UAE/Omani reptiles are a personal favourite of mine, I'd love to see more pics of the gecko.

         

        Hopefully some one at the museum can advise where you can take it or if you would be allowed to keep it.
