There are many different types of geckos down here. My favorite is the house gecko. They don’t get that big and they start off very tiny. I sometimes will see them in my house and have to rescue them from the cats. The reason I like the house gecko is because they laugh, and they can do it at the most inappropriate time. Nothing like being in the shower and you hear that little thing laugh, sometimes is makes you feel a little uncomfortable. But believe me there are worse times when they laugh. Although when my husband and I are having one of our usual funny conversations it seems like they pitch in as well. At night when I am in the shower they always hang out on the window, the bugs are attracted to the light and they know this. So they will hang out on the window and get some extra food. It’s pretty neat because right now I can tell one of them is gravid, with eggs. The skin on their belly is translucent so you can see the eggs inside of her. But you still just have to love the laughing. When I lived in the States I used to have many reptiles for pets, most were rescues. But now, I don’t need to as I can enjoy watching them in nature their natural habitat.
