    Mediterranean geckos

    I was curious if anyone has any information about these little geckos. My friend doesn't want his three anymore so I'm pondering the idea of taking them in. Thank you in advance.

    Actually it helps me a lot. I've decided to accept them so they're being dropped off later today.

    Mediterranean house geckos are really simple herps. Care is pretty much identical to that of green and brown anoles, only the geckos don't require any UVB, and will appreciate shady areas more. Keep in mind that these geckos are NOT for handling. They're very flighty and are good at escaping if you let them.
    Hi.

    They are great geckos. They love to hide in the dark spaces in my house and gobble up any creepy intruders such as palmetto bugs; those are the worst. I think we would be taken over by roaches without Mediterranean Geckos.

    So my friend brought over two of the little guys since he was unable to find one. Here's a couple pictures though:

    Sorry the quality isn't the best. I was rushing to get some shots before I had to go do stuff. I must say, they're quite amusing to observe.

    They're pretty cool little geckos, I have them all over my back yard and usually keep a few on hand.
