After some ‘mending time’ in the home aquarium, we released the lizard back into the wild. (Geckos store a great deal of energy in their tails; the loss of this crucial appendage can greatly impact their survivability.)

Mediterranean Geckos are a fairly benign invasive species in many parts of the world, but in Tucson they’ve displaced the (prettier) native Western Banded gecko in ‘peopled’ areas.

(NOTE: I took these photos with my first digital camera in 2003 — amazing how quickly this perfectionist converted from ponderous film SLRs to the svelte digital age…)
