Adult Asian House Gecko

I had an earlier entry on a young Asian House Gecko I'd discovered on our back door. This evening as I arrived home I noticed this adult Asian House Gecko on the ceiling of our front porch. You can click on the image to enlarge it.

This particular gecko was about 10cm (4 inches) in length. You'll also notice the different colouration of his tail, a sure sign that the tail has recently grown back. This may be the one we nicknamed Stumpy, an adult gecko who'd lost his tail and often appeared on our kitchen window in the evening to feast on moths drawn to the light. We hadn't seen Stumpy for several months so maybe he's grown his tail back.
