House Gecko



The brown anole (Anolis sagrei) is a lizard native to Cuba and the Bahamas. It has been widely introduced elsewhere, by being sold as a pet lizard. Anoles consume the molted skin to make their amount of calcium higher. The brown anole feeds on insects such as crickets, grasshoppers, cockroaches, mealworms, and waxworms as well as other arthropods including spiders.


It used to be Cuba and still is but they are now very common around Florida.

House Gecko. Anoles don't have that shape of feet and body. The pattern on the body also doesn't match.
