    It looks like a brown anole (not gecko) to me, but I could easily be wrong.

    It is definitely a gecko. Probably Cyrtopodion/Mediodactylus genus. Where is it from?

    Is that a picture of one that looks similar to one you actually found, or are you trolling?
    Seems to be this stock photo:

    Kotschy's gecko (although it looks like it has anole feet!)

    Wikipedia: Kotschy's gecko is a species of gecko native to southeastern Europe and the Middle East. It is named in honour of the Austrian botanist and explorer Karl Georg Theodor Kotschy.

    Those stock photos are the only photos I could find with it's markings, unfortunatly there is no info for what kind it is. Much clearer pics than what i could get and it is exactly like those photos. I work for a major freight company in the US and we found this guy in the shop here in Colorado. I figured he must have been a hitchhiker on one of our trailers. Its only about an inch long right now head to tail, so likely still a baby. He is at home now in a leopard gecko habitat, but I haven't seen him eat anything yet(dried leopard gecko food) small flies, bugs, etc... I did watch it drink water and He is still quite active at night though.

    Thank you for the help, i believe Mediodactylus kotschyi is probably correct. Glad to have a better idea and be able to provide the most suitable habitat. My son has been wanting a lizard, so this guy came in perfect timing.

    Welcome to Geckos Unlimited! I "thought" his feet looked familiar! I keep Cyrtodactylus peguensis zebraicus.

    Can you get 1/8 inch crickets for him? I wonder how big he'll grow?

    Although he doesn't look like he could scale glass, my cyrts do "climb" a little. I recommend a fine mesh screen top just in case he feels like Houdini some night.
