Tropical House Gecko

Hemidactylus mabouia


White, slightly translucent skinned lizards that were around 6-8 cm long. There appendages were pinkish, except for the toes that looked almost as black as their eyes. They lizards made quite a chirping noise, and happily put a good dent in the local insect population.


A small house on the edge of a small, Nicaraguan coastal town. These guys were all over outside, and could frequently be seen to come from behind a dresser, or a set of shelves, to gobble up a mosquito and move on.
