Papillomaviruses are widespread in the animal kingdom. In this study, we discovered two new papillomaviruses in the highly invasive Asian house gecko (Hemidactylus frenatus) and mute gecko (Gehyra mutilata) on Christmas Island and Cocos (Keeling) Islands, and in the Critically Endangered Lister’s geckos (Lepidodactylus listeri) in their captive breeding
colony on Christmas Island.
