It looks like it has lost its tail. When this happens to lizards, the tail often grows back shorter and stumpy, instead of gradually thinning out to a tip.

Yes, it has lost his tail and his front left leg. Probably from getting scared when my dad was rotor-tilling (i spealt that wrong didnt i?). Or from the cats messing around with him. They grow back thoe.

That's why in a lot of pictures geckos have stubby tails.

If you handle geckos - or other lizards - too much they can get frigtened and their tail falls off (which twitches - to ward off preditors that would usually scare the lizards). They grow back stumpy, which is not always desired.
