Florida Reef Gecko

Key Largo, Monroe County, Florida
Florida Reef Gecko (Sphaerodactylus notatus notatus)
Florida Reef Gecko (Sphaerodactylus notatus notatus)
Of the many geckos that now occupy Florida, this one is considered by many authorities to be the only native species. It's a tiny little thing, a couple of inches long. I briefly uncovered four of them before I could get one to sit still for photos.
Matheson Hammock Park, Coral Gables, Miami-Dade County, Florida
Florida Reef Gecko (Sphaerodactylus notatus notatus)
Here's another little tyke that was under a palm frond somewhat further north. These geckos are so tiny that they are easy to overlook as they dash for cover.
