Okay, here's how the story goes: a Professor in the Psychology Department found a little lizard in her brand new tropical plant. Knowing of our herpetological expertise, she immediately summoned our assistance. Anyway, a few more details aside, here are some pictures of the little stowaway.
A gecko of the genus Hemidactylus
, likely mamboui
He's pretty tiny but he's thriving in his new home. He has been eating steadily for two weeks now.
Here are some pics:
The plant was likely from a Floridian nursery and it is conceivable that he hatched in transit (due to his very small size and the fact he was still in the plant). He had a little friend with him too but he was desiccated (and dead) upon arrival.
