    I live in Ohio, so was extremely excited and surprised last night to find some geckos just running down a wall outside. Wasn't aware geckos are in Ohio. Maybe pets being let go, but he is so tiny. I'm sure its a house gecko of some kind but not positive. Tail is striped and body is spotted.

    Picture quality makes it hard to discern, but maybe Mediterranean house gecko?

    Definitely not a native. It's not impossible to have geckos running around. I've spotted a few. They can come in from people traveling to southern states where populations have gone wild or as you have stated from release.

    They can easily hitch a ride inside a car frame and possibly make it up this far in the summer months. Unless they are living inside someones house I'd think it is unlikely they are running around wild up here. I would think our winters are still too cold for too long this far north.

    Perhaps you have a Hemidactylus turcicus . . . . . . a Mediterranean house gecko?

    Is it pretty speedy?

    BINGO?
