Indo-Pacific House Gecko

This poor lizard was hiding from the elements under a log on a windy and drizzly cold day. If she were a warm and happy gecko, she would probably be much lighter in color. And I can say "she" with confidence, because Indopacific geckos are parthenogenetic -- they're all females, with virgin births galore.
