    My sister lives in Brooklyn, NY, and just sent me a text saying that she found a lizard on her wall...

    I know enough to identify it as a gecko, but don't know what kind... any help would be appreciated.

    Thanks,

    Jamie

    We had some very similar looking when I lived in Florida and we called them house geckos. When I Google house gecko it pops up "Mediterranean house gecko". Whatever kind he is chances are he can save you some money on your car insurance......

    My guess,and it's only a guess is:

    Cyrtodactylus quadrivirgatus — Four-striped Bent-toed Gecko

    That must be an escaped cb baby...

    I don't know the species either, but that is pretty cool.

    It is pretty cool... She had another one show up in her kitchen two years ago on Christmas Eve.

    I told her it must be from someone keeping them in one of the adjoining houses....
