Gecko on a stovetop

I spotted this baby mourning gecko one evening, just sitting on the stovetop. This is what I call ‘making an unwise decision.’ Fortunately for the gecko, the day’s cooking was done, otherwise it risked getting fried or flattened by a pan.

Baby geckos have a fairly high mortality rate from accidents and predation by larger geckos, but at the same time, there seems to be no shortage of them. I guess some kind of balance has been achieved.

      Some people here hate having them in the house, but I rather like them. For a while, these little geckos seemed to have a competition going. They’d perch on a bit of trim near the couch and, when I was otherwise occupied, would jump off onto my head!
