    Default Gecko found in Mississippi

    It's about an inch long, I'm guessing it's just a lil' baby. I thought it was really odd finding a gecko here since I had never seen one before. It was my belief that they weren't any in this area.

    Hi ~

    Welcome to Geckos Unlimited ! You have discovered the very best gecko forum on the worldwide web !!

    Adding to Palor's reply: Hemidactylus turcicus. I wonder whether those geckos have made their way to Mississippi or just happened there by accident along with some shipment?

    Where did you find "him"?

    I found one of these house geckos running around my room today, was completely suprised when I noticed it was a gecko, as they seem to be "rare" to find in the Jackson area, I have only encountered two other geckos like this one (in Mississippi that is), same species as you found, nearly identical markings, but slightly lighter tone. At first, due to the tail rings, I actually expected it was an escaped juvenile leopard gecko. Thanks to this thread I was able to identify it. This particular specimen is 4 inches long, from nose to tip of tail, and body width is approximately 1/4 of an inch on the torso.
    After pictures and measurements I released it outside on a wall of the house.
    I will attach a picture of the gecko I caught inside my house, and also a picture of a larger, more colorful one, that I managed to snap a picture of with my phone, outside of my house.
