Western Banded Gecko

Coleonyx variegatus


Found in my pool's drain


I felt bad for this gecko because he was stuck all night in my pool's drain! I tried getting him out and learned something about geckos... They squeak! I have never heard a reptile vocalize like that. I transported it to a nice desert area near my house. Check out the close up shot of the face!
