The House Gecko, scientific name Hemidactylus frenatus, is a native of southeastern Asia and the northern parts of Africa. Known as the Pacific house gecko or Asian house gecko, it is the most recently discovered member of a quartet of small, prolific and aggressive little lizards that become active at twilight. They can be seen climbing walls of houses and other buildings in search of insects attracted to porch lights, hence their name. Spread around the world by ships, these geckos are now common around Florida and other southern areas of the United States. They grow to a length of between three to six inches, and live for about five years.
A tropical gecko, Hemidactylus Frenatus thrives in warm, humid areas where it can crawl around on rotting wood in search of the insects it eats. The animal is very adaptable and may prey on insects, spiders and displace other reptiles.
