Gecko Paradise by Yves Rubin

"The geckos of Hawaii have earned a great reputation rooted in the earliest history and the first migrations to the islands. While there are over 900 species of geckos worldwide, only eight species have settled on the islands, four of these in recent years... They sure make themselves at home in our houses. Gecko droppings everywhere! Yet, as long as they stay out of my printer and hard drive, I'll feed them honey every night..."

Thanks for these great pics....I love baby dinosaurs!

I have to point out that picture number 7 from the top is not a gecko. It's actually a Green Anole. The other pics all show beautiful day geckos, though!

Thank you for posting these pics of mine. These geckos are such lovely animals, and I sure would love to have them as visitors in my home (I've heard about the dropping though). Rio is right that the lizard on the 7th picture is an anole. They look quite similar, but the lizard has fingers with nails, while geckos have feet with flat fingers that bear nanosized fibers. This is how they are able to stick to any surface.

You can view more of geckos pictures at http://rubinphoto.com

If I can distinguish an anole from a gecko, than I am officially smarter than those trolls who said that I'M stupid. ^_^

Beautiful photography, That Red and Green one is acutally a invasive Species of Gecko to the Island but so far it hasn't had a negetive effect on the local speices and is a very beautiful variety to the islands.

these are just beautiful! We are lucky to have some lovely ones living around our home, different colours to these though, I am not sure if we have bright colours like these in Australia?

When I was on Guam, it was common to see geckos climbing the walls while you were doing everyday things inside. In fact, the locals consider it unlucky if you DO NOT have geckos in your house. They do eat bugs you know.
Oksana   | | 2010-06-20 12:22:15
That's so interesting! No wonder people like them, these creatures are charming!
Alessandra   | | 2010-09-24 08:25:30
I love the way geckos always look like they're saying, "Ooh, what's THAT?"

Great pics and damn geico. I picture all geckos speaking in an Australian accent.
