Baby Gecko Out Of Hibernation
I originally had a different picture planned for this weeks photo when this cute, little baby gecko showed up, throwing me into a dither!
I very nearly put the two pictures up, but decided that wouldn’t be right, so the baby gecko won.
We’d been putting draft excluder rubber around the windows, and when my husband turned around from applying the rubber, he had this little baby gecko clinging to his top. It must have been hibernating in the shutters or even on the curtains (they are a cream colour) and somehow fell and landed on my husband.
Usually geckos, even baby ones will shoot off before you can touch them, but this one didn’t move apart from the rise and fall of it’s belly as it breathed.
During the summer it’s not unusual to find us sat on the balcony watching lizards stalking and eating insects on the walls.
After this photo was taken we put it on the balcony in the sun and it disappeared. I’ve no doubt we will be seeing that baby gecko again next summer keeping the mosquito population down.
Have you accidentally woken a creature from it’s winter slumber?
