Backyard Adventure // Mediterranean House Gecko

Every year when the weather starts to warm up, our front porch becomes home to dozens of Mediterranean House Geckos.  They're a nocturnal species, which means we typically only ever see them at night-but while doing a bit of work outside, this one was found under a small leaf pile.  As someone who is obsessed with all things reptile, I couldn't resist handling it for a few photos :)  After jumping from my hand to my shirt a few times, it finally settled down and seemed content hanging out on my hand and wrist for a while.

I think geckos have the most incredible eyes.  They remind me of two things: Nebulas and The Eye of Sauron! :)

Do you have House Gecko's?
