Gigantor

florida
Hollywood, Florida
March 29, 2009

Zarek named this guy "gigantor, because of its size. My parents house is also home to a variety of geckoes. As a kid I remember tons of Anoles, but not much in the way of geckoes. This was is quite large, quite loud, and lives under the shutter by my old bedroom window. Of course, the sound she makes is "geckoe, geckoe". Actually there are 2 trills followed by 6-7 "gec-koes".

This more normal sized geckoe likes to hang out in the mail box (upon which he is sitting in this picture). There are many more of his ilk that come out at night time.
