"I found what appears to be a baby Gecko indoors when I opened up shop early this morning where I work in North Hollywood, CA. I hesitated to release it outside because I was worried that it was an invasive species and I am concerned about the impact of non-natives on our native lizard populations. I have given it water and tiny insects, but I have not witnessed it eat.
A gecko was found there, same building, years ago. 2006? 2007? It was much larger. I honestly thought it was an escaped leopard gecko, but now I wonder. That previous gecko escaped."

Saw these on top of the parking garage at 440 Broadway in Downtown LA. They were already past their peak and were relatively low in numbers. The parking attendant had been watching them circle and funnel into a nearby smokestack every evening for the past week and said there were many more a few days back.
