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
