Description

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

"This is the gecko I was telling you about on my brother's porch. There are at least 2 living there. I first saw geckos on his porch many years ago, like 10 or 15 at least, so they've been successful there for a long time. When I first saw them I couldn't believe how pink they were. This gecko is more tan, so either my memory is faulty or they've changed over time.

"They live near the foothills, the last bit of flat land before you head up to Big Bear, Crestline, etc. This was taken a couple of days ago, the weather has been pretty mild out there."
