Thank-you all for the Awesome help! I am so excited to find Iguanas and geckos - so mind blowing that they pose for their picture! :)

Dear Kyle, I've loaded up better photos of this Tokay Gecko - Bright Orange and Green.

Looks like you figured it out. There is an edit button and then drop down menus for you to select everything. If you are unsure about an ID, try posting here first: http://www.fieldherpforum.com/forum/viewforum.php?f=11

We can help you ID things. You can also join NAFHA, though how to do that is a bit too complicated for this tiny comment box :)

Dear Noah, I record the sighting on the day it is entered.

Can you add the genus and species, and put the date for when it was observed (12/23) not when you entered it. It automatically records when you create the entry and when you last modified it.

Thanks! Keep finding 'em!

Can you split this into two entries - one for the iguana and the other for the Tokay?

Thank-you! The screaming was the poor frog. His one back leg and stomach were in the Gecko's mouth and he was hurting. Poor thing, left a saucer size blood stain on our siding. UGH!

Your gecko is a Tokay Gecko (Gekko gecko). Awesome observation! What was screaming, the gecko or the frog? Tokay Geckos are known to make some pretty crazy noises.
