It looks like a Tropical House Gecko to me, Hemidactylus mabouia. There are two color morphs that I'm aware of, this would be the darker one. My grandparents moved up here from Florida about a year ago and one about an inch long hopped out of their tool box while they were unpacking. Cute little bugger -- hard to keep food for it though, if you buy too many pinheads, they grow too large for the damn thing before you can feed them to it! They do get much larger though. I believe they originate from Africa...
