Spotted this Indo Pacific Gecko this morning as I went outside to throw away the garbage. I haven't seen many lately, but know they are around because of all the gecko poop they leave behind. 68 degrees and 78 percent humidity at the time of the observation.

Description

Went to Imperial Valley with Jeff and Nate hoping to find Cali Atrox due to recent rains and monsoonal humidity. We did find one atrox and then we stopped at a friends house in Seeley and saw a bunch of these house geckos on the outside of his house and under surface objects. Must have been close to 20 total. Also found a few out in the wild near New River but did not take any vouchers. Interesting to find them not in residential area and not on walls or buildings

Finally found one of these in Cali, found a few last year in Phoenix and looked for them in Ocotillo before but this was the first one officially found. In a crack of wall where wall meets ground, was able to catch for a voucher. I'm sure there were more but due to wind we did not look long.

Description

In march of 2012 i found 3 deceased juveniles at wilson elementary where i worked. In april i found 2 adults, and throughout the year till Novenber found at leat 24 other specimens. Supposedbly let go outdoors a few years back by a fourth grade teacher. I have discovered a healthly population in the nature center of the school. The geckos seem to survive well in our high humidity and being nocturnal have avoided the school populace. Have found gravid specimens and after fall the hatchlings are found all over ther school.
