Gekko monarchus — Spotted House Gecko
My guide Kurt "Orion" G and I saw several adults of this largish gecko on various buildings on this night, but they all escaped my camera. The only individual I managed to photograph was this tiny baby.
This one from a few days later was still not a fully grown adult, but it was quite a bit older and larger.
This gecko was nearly invisible as it hugged the surface of a large boulder.
This tiny baby gecko has already lost its tail. You'd think life on our cabin wall would be cozy and safe.
