This Gecko was found in our yard in the Catalina Foothills of Tucson. We id-ed it, photographed, and turned it loose.
"My kiddos found what we believe to be a Western Banded Gecko in the pool in Henderson, NV. Luckily they found him just in time and scooped him up the skimmer net. While he was catching his breath my youngest cradled him gently in his hands. He was really sweet with sticky little feet and smooth and soft skin. After he seemed calm we released him in the bushes at the side of the yard.
"A friend who saw my pictures (see attachments) suggested we contact you for research purposes. Hope we are of help. Please let us know if you have any questions we would love to participate however we can."
