Woohoo. Until early in the a.m. this morning I didn't even think about the reptiles that would be in Texas. This week my dear Aunt invited me to stay with her for a week mid-August. I am so excited! I asked her "geckos in Texas???" and she replied that her kitty is usually preoccupied by them. :D Now it is a must to get my camera fixed, for in a few weeks I'm going herping for these beauties! Eeeek. So ecstatic. I'm also hoping that what I read is true, that green anoles and spiny tailed lizards will be down there as well. If I could just see a banded gecko down there I'd be overwhelmed. This will be a first for me to see geckos in their natural habitat.

Hate to burst your bubble but we don't have bandeds in Houston. The only geckos you will see in houston are mediterranean geckos around the lights at night. You will have to go to south or west Texas to find bandeds. Plenty of green anoles though.

Med Geckos are everywhere. You can find Coleonyx south of Houston about 5 or so hours. You will ofcourse have a hard time finding anything down there this time of year though.

The loading docks and warehouses in Galveston,TX have a population of introduced Rough Tailed Geckos there. I've been meaning to make it a point to find them for several years now. Finding Green Anoles and Brown Anoles wont be a problem for ya either.
