Our Family "Pet" continued....

As I mentioned earlier this week we have a "guest" in our home.

I know you're thinking "Oh my Stars!  There's a lizard in your house!!"  You're wrong.  It is in fact a gecko.  Yes, a living and breathing gecko although he's never entertained us with any of his quirky commercials.  He snuck into our home about a year ago when I was keeping Ethan.  No, he isn't gone yet and not for lack of effort...trust me!  That little booger is FAST!   
While some might think having a gecko living with them would be a nuisance he's been a bit helpful.  Those tiny black sugar ants suddenly disappeared as well as any other pesky bug.  Don't get me wrong, I would love for our friend to take a speedy exit back to his natural environment.  I am a bit concerned that he's now unable to survive out in the wild since he's so accustomed to being "fed" I'll still take that chance.  So we've come to an understanding that as long as he or she never comes into the bedrooms then we will remain a gecko loving family.

I know it does look just like a normal lizard judging by the first picture but there's a few more that shows off his translucent skin.  Its very creepy.  I'm thankful that Gecko only likes to come out when we aren't home and probably when we're sleeping.


This one was mid-run...notice how he's raised off the wall.  UGH it makes my skin scrawl!!


I'm scared to go near my dining room window because of this!!

I'm with you, I wouldn't like this guest. If you want to come on by and meet Jack I’m home.

LOL! It's just a tiny little gecko! Hey, at least he is useful!

That's so funny. I'm TERRIFIED of bugs, but that little lizards and things don't bother me. I might feel different though, if I had one living in my dining room!

He seems to be a helpful little guest though!
