Notes

Observed 7 live specimens outside on my property. 6 in the rotted out bases of 2 dead trumpet vine plants and 1 on the opposite side of the property in a brick pile. Working on walls in the house I found the attached nest pictures which I presume (but can not confirm) are also med. house geckos. Location accuracy is somewhat obfuscated, since it is my home address, but if precise locations are needed I can provide that information to a researcher.

2nd and 4th picture are the same nest, blurry photo was added with the 1" ruler. There were also small clutches elsewhere in the walls of 10-15 eggs that I did not photograph.
