Geckos

While tearing apart an old deck in my backyard I caught a pair of nice sized Mediterranean geckos.

Luckily I was able to catch both of them without the loss of either’s tail, which is good for the gecko, seeing that the loss of its tail, which is a survival mechanism, costs precious energy to regrow.

Afterwards I released them in our firewood pile. I have written a couple of other entries on these cool lizards. Check them out here and here.

Mr. Stansbury--

My name is Owen Moorhead. I ran across your blog recently and was delighted and inspired by it. I'm a hopeful amateur naturalist myself (and proud Texan), and the obvious enthusiasm and dedication of this blog is admirable. I'm leaving a comment because I can't seem to find any contact information on the blog, and I'd like to ask you some questions and hopefully solicit some advice from you. In the meantime, keep up the good work and thanks for your posts!
