I just had to share this picture taken in my kitchen this evening. We have this tiny baby gecko (an inch head to tail) in our house - I tried to catch him in the bathroom yesterday (to release him outside), but he was determined not to be caught. Tonight I found him trying to use my laptop! Now he's peering over the edge of the counter, trying to determine if the drop to the floor is safe. Probably not little guy.
Should you be scared of geckos? Nope. Geckos are pretty harmless, and though they probably will startle you, they are considered good luck here in Hawaii! They also eat bugs - nature's pest control. But yes, I agree, I'd rather he go outside!
