Description

My aunt saw this at her house in hawaii and asked me if i wanted a picture of it(she new I was studying reptiles since I posted alot of pictures on my social media). I had her take a picture house in Hawaii as well as video record it. I suspect it to be a common house gecko(based on the descriptions online). She fed it some ants and a dead cockroach(I got to see this through facetime)

Description from Wikipedia

The Common House Gecko, scientific name Hemidactylus frenatus (not to be confused with the Mediterranean species Hemidactylus turcicus known as Mediterranean house gecko) is a native of southeastern Asia. It is also known as the Pacific house gecko, the Asian house gecko, or simply, the house lizard. Most geckos are nocturnal, hiding during the day and foraging for insects at night. They can be seen climbing walls of houses and other buildings in search of insects...
