I think these are Mediterranean house geckos but I'm not sure. These pictures are taken in Palm Springs, CA. I saw four adults and one baby gecko. They were on a lamp post.

Description

Baby squirrel on front lawn, ( pine trees line our street) dehydrated, bit of blood coming from one nostril, very weak. Neighbor had seen it on his wall day before. No mother in sight and didn't come to retrieve squirrel when placed on lawn in the sun. Took baby in, gave it Pedialyte for 24 hrs. Then started on Esbilac formula. Another baby squirrel seen on pine tree, left it alone. Watched it make it up tree, then it fell to the lawn. It ran up to me! Tried to get into house, climbed up screen, then went into house under screen. Showed 2nd squirrel the 1st squirrel and he jumped onto hand and nestled with 1st squirrel. Gave 2nd squirrel Pedialyte 24 hrs. then Esbilac. Husband built large cage, put it in sun in front yard with the 2 male babies. A third baby squirrel, a female, crying in front yard, running around near cage. I picked it up it put in cage with first two. Raised them to release age and weight. They now roam our trees and come to us for walnuts, hazelnuts, almonds, and a crushed rodent block mixture I make with powdered milk for toddlers, applesauce and crushed nuts. They also eat oranges, grapes, blackberries, pomegranate seeds. An old man at other end of street saw me feeding them and informed me he traps squirrel and takes them on a "one way ride" up to the mountains. He said he would take "mine" if caught! He said we are "being overrun by squirrels." Not! He keeps trap on parkway by the sidewalk (city property) near his house. I have released squirrels from his trap three times. I don't know if they are "mine" or not, and I don't know if it was the same squirrel the three times or not. I read they have 80% to 100% chance of dying when relocated. There have been squirrels in our neighborhood and surrounding neighborhoods for years. I haven't seen more than 3 or four occupying my street. ( Every year these neighborhood squirrels get into our very large avocado tree and take bites out of the avocados.) I suspect he had trapped "my" squirrels' mother and that's why they were running around alone and unafraid of people. I did see one large male chasing "my" squirrels into the avocado tree. I have not seen this one for about a month. Sadly, at this writing I have not seen "my" female for a day and a half, and at 8:25 a.m I have yet to see the two males either. The trap down the street is empty, though. These three nest together right now since they are only about 5 months old. The only vocalizations they make are squeaks when one chases another away when I am offering them food. Sometimes they are all three together, most times one male with the female, more often the two males together. The female has, on a couple of occasions, not showed up for a day. They have occupied an abandoned barn owl nest high up in a pine tree in front of our house. They go there at sundown for the night. They also have a drey in a tall tree in our back yard. They female has been seen in a cypress tree, resting on a clump of cypress leaves that had collected between the branches.
