    Well, if you live in South, he'll probably be ok outside, garage or shed. Looks like gecko I find under dry old boards in shed. Maybe few crawling threw my camp or under.
    Hopefully he didn't catch ride up north.

    He looks like a house gecko to me, though I don't know the specific species. If you look up Mediterranean gecko babies you'll get lots of pictures like him. He's cute! Hope he does okay.

    Their care is usually pretty similar but without having had one I can't say how good a guide this is: https://www.lllreptile.com/articles/25-house-gecko/)

    Your stowaway looks like a mourning gecko (Lepidodactylus lugubris). With a better picture I could say for certain.

    Now, instead of Rep-Cal's Calcium with D3 (way too much vitamin D3), I lightly dust with Zoo Med's Repti Calcium with D3 at 1 feeding per week. At a second feeding per week lightly dust with Zoo Med's Repti Calcium without D3. Maybe 2x per month also lightly dust with Zoo Med's Reptivite multivitamins without D3.
