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?
