    Uh oh! I think I figured out how to actually use my scanner! You know what this means? Lots of picture posts to come! LOL!
    Anyway, here's some baby geckos that I produced. Notice how small the eggs are in relation to the dime.

    I get them a bit smaller in the future. Anyway, here's the female that just laid those eggs. Hard to believe those came out of her. Sorry for my bad photography skills.

    Last one of geckos for now. This is a baby that hatched from those eggs. The milk jug cap is it's water bowl.

    It also means you need to read the 'sticky' posted at the top of the pictures forum on resizing large pics. Your last one was ok though, good job.

    Yeah, sorry, I'm working on it. One thing at a time.

    Hmmm.. so is that what the little pink lizards are that the cats keep capturing in the garage and bringing in? Do geckos only come out at dark.. and stay in dark places? I'll have to get pictures tonight and post them to you and find out what kind of lizards we have around here.

    There are tons of different species & sub-species of geckos from all over the world. There are both nocturnal and diurnal (night & day) geckos. As well as terrestrial and arboreal (ground & climbing) geckos.
    I would love to see pics you get.

    By the way, the ones in my pics are from your area. They are Texas Banded geckos,Coleonyx brevis.

    Ok, here are a couple of photos.. not very clear, except for one. Since you know so much about lizards, you'll understand it's rather difficult to get close to one with a camera that takes a few seconds to shoot after you press the button... and hitting them with a flashlight beam sends them scurrying also.

    They're a bit different then the ones I had kept/bred. Mine were terrestrial, those are arboreal. I don't have my book in front of me to give you the actual scientific (or Latin) name, but they appear to be some sort of "house geckos" as they are commonly called, for obvious reasons.
    Kinda neat, I don't have stuff like that here. Thanks for sharing the pics.

    By all means.. make a visit and take some back with you. There are tons of small ones.. less than 1 1/2 " long everywhere right now.

    Maybe we'll have enough this year that will eat all the baby crickets before they grow up and get into the house.
