Hemidactylus mabouia, 27 November 2015

Hemidactylus mabouia, the Tropical house gecko;
Monroe county, Florida (27 November 2015).

Native to sub-Saharan Africa, the Tropical house gecko is now well established throughout much of South America, the Caribbean, southern Asia, and many portions of the eastern United States. In Florida, they’re very well established and are among our more-commonly observed gecko species. As is the case with most geckos, they are nocturnal and often feed on the abundance of arthropods attracted to artificial lights.
