Description

My word, the turkish geckos are common in Mt. Dora, Florida these days. My parents' home --just north of Lake Dora and on the Mt. Dora / Tavares border-- is crawling with them at night. When the Cuban brown anoles go to sleep, the turkish geckos come out to play. Between these two non-native species, the bugs of Florida are always kept on their toes.

Please note that color and contrast on these photographs have been exaggerated. I wanted to pull out the texture and coloration a bit. In central Florida they usually appear quite pale. The blue is there, but not quite so contrasted.
