We've had families of geckos in our yards, both front and back, for several years now. I've seen large ones and tiny ones. Out back, they are usually by the water faucet. This guy was out front, near the defunct bird fountain, which hasn't had water in or near it for YEARS. I was out there yesterday cleaning up all the debris and old leaves when I saw him scamper by! He went up the side of the garage and stayed there long enough for me to take these photos, then off he went!
