unfortunately we had no standard means of measuring the gecko at the time though I believe somebody else got some pictures of it next to a reference item.

I usually just guestimate when it comes to snakes (~2 ft, ~3.5 ft, etc) and don't bother with lizards, but if it was something outlandish like your gecko pic appears to be, I would just measure it in relation to my hand (e.g. "as long as my middle finger," "SVL three times the width of my thumbnail," etc) and then measure my associated body part when I had a ruler handy.

>>Next week I'm getting a metric ruler to the millimeter tattooed on my forearm so I can never say I didn't have a ruler for anything under 20cm.

Just don't lose/gain any weight or it will give erroneous readings!

>>I also figured out why I couldn't find any info on the Tucson -- I was spelling it "tuscan"

Kind of like the FedEx commercial where the guy tries to send something to "puh-HO-nix," not knowing it's pronounced "feenix." "Tuscan" has more of a European sound to it.
