cute lil buggers

They run all over my window screens at night eating bugs. Did a little research and saw they could be kept as pets... so I wondered... hmmmm.....

We keep one with 2 tree frogs, all wild caught on a vacation by my daughter. Pretty easy to care for, but it spends most of its time hiding.

Right, I see them mostly at night. During the day when Im working, cleaning driftwood or stacking unstacking lumber, hiding or waiting for night.. at night they come out and ketch bugs by lamplight... right now I'm contemplating the right cage...

I have to say I have a hard time thinking of a cage tight fitting enough to hold one who wanted out.

In the UK we get the occassional fox or hedgehog wandering around... why can't we have geckos too? They're so much cooler!

Considering I have skunks living in my bathroom walls, a gecko is a welcome relief (Also have the occasional grey fox and feral cats in the yard.)

I thought that'd make you feel better The only upside to the skunks is that they eat nesting mice so I have no mice in the house. And no mice = no rattlesnakes (and skunks very rarely spray each other, thankfully)

Well at least you're looking at the positive aspects of the situation what hapens when foxes start living in the walls to eat the nesting skunks?

Then the coyotes will start moving in to eat the foxes

It's like Noah's Ark! Except it's actually Doggo's Walls

Obviously I live in the country, LOL! Foxes and such thankfully stay away from skunks. I've seen one high-tail it over a 6' fence to get away from a skunk Actually only predators of skunks are Great Horned Owls, who have a very weak sense of smell

Don't forget would-be predators: dogs who are either ignorant about skunks or too blasted stubborn to back down! I've owned a couple of each

But back to the geckos, if they're Texas natives why "Mediterranean"?

They're an invasive species but not particularly harmful, unless you're an insect.

Luckily dogs can't get into my bathroom walls to go after skunks
