Kind of cute, actually. : ) We figured that as long as he stayed there (where we could see him!) that we were ok with it. ...He did move but we could actually see him on the side of the wall later that night.
I would estimate that he over one foot in length!
And do you notice his NAILS?!
Tracy's friend said that she thinks it is a Tokay Gecko - and I would agree! Looking at Google images of Tokay geckos... looks like this guy.
