Island Geckos

At least I think they are all geckos.  Geckos can be seen all over the island of Grand Cayman.  You can take a nice little stroll down a main street and at least a couple of these little scamps will zip across the sidewalk in front of you.  I happen to know first hand that the little curly tailed guys are quite fond of cake.  Up until we visited the QEII Botanical Park, I assumed that most of the islands little (and sometimes big) lizard inhabitants were just shades of green.  As you can see from the examples here, they come in many beautiful shades and patterns.  All of the little lizzies here were photographed in the botanical park except for Mr. Curly Tail, he and his kin lizards were all around the condo where we stayed, and the one green guy right above Mr. Curly.  Green guy was in a tree right in the middle of the sidewalk on West Bay Road, a main street on the island.

Later I will post some pictures of their very big and endangered cousin.

    Love the lizard looks. I often think it would be great to live in a climate that could sustain lizards. The little buggers fascinate me . And then I think about the spiders that also enjoy that climate. There aren’t enough lizards in the world that would make me feel comfortable there and I start contemplating moving further north.
