Geckos


I can't believe I have these geckos in my own yard!

They usually hide on the other side of the fence and will pop out every once in awhile. I've been trying to leave jelly out for them.

The following info is from here

Rather than arriving as a stowaway as other geckos and skinks have, the gold dust day gecko was illegally smuggled in and released. The entire Hawaiian population stems from only eight lizards a University of Hawaiʻi student released near the Mānoa campus in 1974. Shortsighted lizard enthusiasts intentionally dispersed the geckos, which then colonized new areas on their own.

Hi Jalna,

Are these the geckos the Geico one is modeled after? We saw some of these "live" geckos in this art gallery in Hanapepe and thought they were some pieces on display until they started moving.

Just caught up on your blogging. So entertaining. I loved your teeth brushing pic. So adorable.

Interesting. Never seen the green variety. We have choke geeks where we lived, even Jacksons

I agree, Lorna!

LOL, Les.

Al, sure looks like the Geico one, yah. I still laugh when I look at goofy picture of me.

Jacksons too, Chet!!

They are, Kat.
