:I agree that it is some of gecko. We have them where I live and in my house. I did notice that the local environment is spotted and I wonder if the gecko is in camo.

Although not native, Med Geckos aren't considered to be invasive because there are no other nocturnal, arboreal geckos they can out-compete. They are established in urban areas through much of the South US.
