Observed this baby Indo Pacific Gecko on the window sill. We are having a couple of days of warm weather. The highs in Torrance yesterday was about 82 degrees and the overnight low was 50 degrees. Today might be a little cooler. With this warm weather upon us, I'll be checking around later this evening to see if there is any gecko activity.

This is not a great picture of this Indo Pacific Gecko, but I just wanted to document the observation for research purposes. The temperature at the time was 54 degrees, and the overnight temperature was around 49 degrees. I'm amazed that she wasn't somewhere warmer, like under my house. Greg, I hope this can help your research in trying to understand how this species has adapted to the climate in Torrance.
