    Default What Species Gecko Is This?


    LOG IN TO CLOSE THIS AD   


    Hey, sorry if I'm doing anything wrong here, I'm very new to forums, and this is basically my last effort. I've been googling and asking around elsewhere but I haven't been able to find anything.
    To start, all the information you might need:
    This gecko has lived in a Quebec pet store for 2 years, the label reads "Gecko a Bandes", french, banded gecko. He's maybe 5-6 inches long, I'll post of a pic of him in my hand for rough scale, I don't know what gender he is, and the only information I have is just, "gecko a bandes".
    He has toe pads, he can climb and linger on the glass, just by looking at him I was able to rule out Coleonyx (specifically, the Arizona, Texas, Central American, Western, and Peninsula banded geckos). He resembles a bent toe gecko that was only recently discovered but he definitely isn't that gecko, and I think bent toes don't have toe pads, so he's probably not a bent toe. He might be Malaysian? I'm really lost here. He's not very expensive, he's interesting, and I'd like to get him, but I need to know what kind of gecko he is before I can do that.
    EDIT: I think it's important to note his patterns, and the shape of his head in the hand pic, he might be some kind of house gecko, but I haven't found him a doppelganger yet, I think we can rule out Mediterranean house geckos though.

    sorry for poor quality, and also if I did this wrong, again I'm, very new to forums in general.

    Google some pictures of the Mediterranean House Gecko (Hemidactylus turcicus) and see if you've got a match.

    I really doubt it's a Mediterranean house gecko, he pattern just doesn't match IMO, but I'm not familiar with MHG morphs, if there are any. I get the feeling this is a wild type morph of whatever it is. Thanks for the help though!

    It is a house gecko but a different species. It is a Hemidactylus fasciatus or one of the species that were splitted from it in the last revision.
