    LOG IN TO CLOSE THIS AD   


    Found this guy in backyard, looks kinda cool so I'm trying to keep it.
    It's tail is a big fat, not a normal long tail. The tail has the same color and pattern as the body, but the end tip is thin and black

    Welcome to Geckos Unlimited! Your gecko is gravid!

    How long is it from snout to tail tip? The tail is regenerating.

    May I ask where you live? That might help ID your critter.

    I'm hard to measure as it's very fast. I think it's about 3" long. I live in Hawaii.

    It's likely a Lepidodactylus lugubris (mourning gecko). I have descendants from those I captured in Kauai in 1988. Their pattern is a little different, but there are many variations.

    All these are variations of Lepidodactylus lugubris.
