    does anyone know what kind of gecko this is? I think it is a indo-pacific gecko or a mediteranian gecko. I found it in Maui, Hawii on my back balcony.

    Lepidodactylus lugubris, commonly the Mourning gecko, sometimes referred to as the smooth-scaled gecko.
    This is a parthenogenetic, all-female species that has established populations on many tropical places around the world. It generally populates new places very fast due to its reproductive habits, as It only takes one gecko cloning itself to get one going. These guys stay small and feed off of little invertebrates as well as fruit and nectar, and can be quite vocal for their size. Even though they are all female, they form semi-complex social networks which are hardly understood or have been studied. As all parthenogenetic sp., these guys (girls) came about from a natural hybrid between two other Lepidodactylode species. One of my personal favorite geckos!
