    LOG IN TO CLOSE THIS AD   


    Hi guys,
    Its my first post on here, so first of all hello to all of you!
    I found this little guy yesterday on a quite strange way.
    Im working for an airline and we were flying to Marrakech, on the way back this little guy was found in the cabin. Since its quite cold here in Germany and I didnt want to leave him behind in the aircraft, i took him home with me.
    I have now build a small home for him, until I can bring him to a zoo or buy a terrarium for him.
    Now my question is, what kind of gecko is it?
    Can I keep it alone, or does it need to have company?
    Would it be better to bring him to a zoo or keep him in a terrarium?

    Thanks for your help!
    Im looking forward to your answers and getting to know more about those little animals!

    All the best

    I hope that someone can help you with identifying this little guy. In general, geckos are solitary and don't require (or want) a companion.

    Whether you keep him or take to a zoo is up to you and how committed you are to his care, and most important would be heating and eating requirements. I hope that someone can jump in here with ID so you can find out the correct diet and environment for him. Thanks for caring enough to take him in!

    It's hard for me to tell from the picture, but chances are high that it's a house gecko (genus Hemidactylus), so google the genus and look at picture of the specific species.

    Welcome to Geckos Unlimited, Constantin!

    Please share a better picture -- one that shows him clearly.

    Try feeding him crickets.
