#81 Turkish Gecko

Hemidactylus turcicus
IUCN Redlist: Least Concern
Location: New Orleans, Louisiana
Time: 0000 CDT October 18 2011

I'm pretty sure the small individual (~4cm total length) is H. turcicus, although lacking a good guide book, I'm basing that on what information I can find on the internet.

This larger specimen (~15cm total length) I'm less sure of. Most pictures I've found of H. turcicus have been smaller, and have more obvious banding on the tail, although this one looks like it's lost and subsequently regrown it's tail. As always, if you can offer a better ID, I would be most appreciative.
