I remember learning about that on animal plant as a kid, I think it was most extreme animals??? If only humans could just clone themselves
Invasive species??So it does look like a morning gecko. Not native to Florida, but would not surprise me if they are there.
They are very tiny.
Now the key part ! They do not need a mate. They are all female and will reproduce on their own, even if there is only one. There is a word for it , but I forget.
I'd be interested in reading about that. Can you post a link please?I've been doing some digging, this species needs a male and female to breed.
I was referring to my gecko Hemidactylus mabouiaI'd be interested in reading about that. Can you post a link please?
I'm aware that there are males but was told they weren't needed...this article talks about the males...
So.. have you decided what you are going to do with it?? I’m interested. It could make a cool pet with a funny story behind it.
(I like your name btw)
I can imagine! As bad as a rogue cricket?Caught another one wandering the house, this dwelling is inhospitable for long term habitation by anything, so I guess I have a gecko enclosure now.
These guys are an absolute nightmare to catch.
No, worse, they jump, dash, skitter, go backwards, forwards, up and down, and when that fails, they activate their teleportation field.I can imagine! As bad as a rogue cricket?
I envy you in a way. :MrGreen: Never having lived in an area with indigenous lizards (except visiting my grandparents in FL as a kid), I always imagined (with the same childlike innocence) that finding lizards in the house would be fun—like chasing down the first bat that hitched a ride in on someone's clothing. (Age & reality are good at killing off childhood conceptions ). The closest I've come are the odd garter snake in the basement or garage. (Sigh)
So it sounds like there may be a connection between your two squatters(?) Mystery solved?
It seems to be Mediterranean Gecko . They are also introduced in Mobile Alabama. I can find them on my house.
