House Gecko

House Gecko
Ok, it's not the best photo in the world, I'll grant you that. But, it is of one of our house geckos.
As Wikipedia ( says about them "... well-known to people who live in warm regions of the world where several species of geckos make their home inside human habitations. These species ... become part of the indoor menagerie and are seldom really discouraged because they feed on insect pests".

Our geckos maintain a chatter among themselves, chirping away, day and night. It's funny at times and they're always entertaining.

Geckos here are lightly mottled in a light tan coloring. They spend a lot of time in amongst the hurricane shutters and elsewhere about the house. They really are beneficial, eating all manner of buggy pests that inevitably get into your home down here in the tropics.
