Hello Zach,

This gecko currently resides at my college. I am responsible for the husbandry of the collection of animals, but this gecko's identity is a mystery to me. I originally thought it was Thecadactylus rapicauda, but after finding a ton in Panama (see photo below), I have ruled that species out. When comparing the two I found that the eyes and feet are much different.

This gecko has no known history, but I am assuming it was purchased from a Pet Store in California. I have never seen this species for sale before though.

Thank you for your help.

Cheers,
Michael
