I came across a Mediterranean house gecko early this evening and took a photograph of it. The photograph is a little out of focus because the gecko was perched high up and I couldn't keep my camera steady. I carried out a search on Google to try and find more about it apparently a Mediterranean house gecko is known as Hemidactylus turcicus. More information can be found on the following link, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mediterranean_house_gecko I was already quite fond of these little reptiles as I know that they prey on small cockroaches. I had actually been thinking of ways of introducing more geckos into the house to tackle the problem we have with cockroaches.
