My neighbor has something interesting in her garage door..... gecko eggs! I have seen these before, but never knew what they were.

Geckos are very common here in Hawaii. There are different types... here is a link I found with brief descriptions about them (I have never seen any of those 12-14 inch ones they talk about!).
My first experience with a gecko was on our first trip to Maui in 2004. At bedtime I saw one in my 5 month old's room. I panicked, having horror visions of this gecko (about 3 inches long) getting into the playpen at night. Later I learned that geckos are harmless to humans and eat cockroaches and other bugs (on a side note, our condos are treated preventatively on a regular basis). This makes geckos my friends, though I still jump when I see them in the house. The neighborhood kids have competitions catching (and releasing) them.
