    Default Rescue Gecko ID question


    LOG IN TO CLOSE THIS AD   


    So my wife and I were recently given a rescued gecko from a local rescue that mostly deals with bearded dragons. The rescuers told us it was a crested gecko but last night after they dropped it off I finally got a look at it and it doesn't look anything like the crested I've seen.

    It's got no ridges or "eye lashes" and it looks like it's regrowing it's tail. It's about 5 inches without tail, around 6.5 or 7.5 with tail and probably 1.5 inches wide at his thickest. From what they've said, he's been eating fruit well and he's fairly skittish when handled. As for his housing he came in a 12x12x18 exo terra which in my opinion is way to small. I'm planning to move him into a 20 long or even a spare 55 gallon turned up long ways as soon as I can verify he's eating well and healthy.

    As a little bit of regional info, I live in Alaska (so it's not from here) and our only pet store is a petco that typically only stocks bearded dragons, leopard geckos, crested geckos, and a few odd balls (iguanas, monitors, water dragons etc) every now and then. Anyway, thanks for any help you can give.

    It looks like a house gecko to me. Google "hemidactylus" and check out the wikipedia article.

    I think it is a white spotted wall gecko (Tarentola annularis)
