  • what kind of gecko is this?

    I'm not familiar with this type. Though it was a rach. Interested in purchasing it from a seller, but he doesn't know what it is either. I could use some help, lol

    It looks like a sphaerodactylus, but I'd like to see a bigger picture. Not sure sure of the subspecies, there are many. I've seen them in the Caribbean. They are tiny, so if you buy it, be sure to research food requirements. You'd need fruit flies or pinhead crickets.

        head is all wrong for sphaerodactylus. looks more like a mourning gecko, but it's hard to tell from such a small picture.

          It looks like a mourning to me too.
          Currently keeping Correlophus ciliatus, Pantherophis guttatus, Trachemys scripta elegans, and Hemitheconyx caudicinctus.
          I have also kept Phelsuma klemmeri, Eublepharis macularius, Rhacodactylus auriculatus, and Lampropeltis getula californiae.

            Thanks for your help. The owner finally came up with an answer and said they believe it is a house gecko.

              I'm still stumped on what it is, but it does not look like a house gecko at all to me either.

                I would probably not buy an animal who can't even identify what species they're selling.

                  Not the best picture quality, but I am pretty certain it is Hemidactylus frenatus. So, common house gecko is right as many of the Hemidactylus are called house geckos. You can google Hemidactylus or Hemidactylus frenatus and get general care info.

                  Regard,

                  Btw, last I saw them they are only a few dollars each wholesale, maybe $10 or $15 retail. Free if you live in Florida, Texas or a few other states where they are invasives.
