Isn't this thing just NASTY? And it was in out basement! I'd hate to think of what else may be down there...perhaps bigger ones then this...

I hope there aren't any more too!

Yeah, you'd almost expect it to be wrapped in linen.

poor thing. . . my dad has had a gecko living in his house for years. . . lol I caught him as a little girl and brought him in to show everyone, and lost him in the house. .. Every once in a while you see him chillin in the corner of the living room. He started out smaller than the one that you found, but last i saw him he was a good four to five inches. So we know he is keeping the bugs out of the house!!! Somehow he has managed to evade our cats all these years!

We have a couple here too. The kids will bring them in and they get away.
Luckily, my cats haven't gotten them either

Aaaawww! Poor little guy!
Living in Florida I have my share of encounters with lizards...I love them, they are so cool!
Recently I had to rescue a baby gecko from the shop floor where I work-I caught him & took him out back to release him before he got crushed. He wouldn't let go of my hand & we just sat there looking at each other for awhile. Just last night Mini cornered another baby one that was inside the apartment,I had to take him outside & he didn't want to let go, either! Maybe I have a way with lizards!
They are beautiful if you just pause & look at them for a minute...they wont hurt you, I promise.

I found something like that once, except it was a petrified frog. Can't help but feel bad for the little guys.

In MN, that's a mummified Salamander!

We found a frog like that once in my parent's garage. I didn't touch it!

I remember when my friend moved into this one old house with her parents they found mice skeletons in the basement. It was a very old house. I believe the basement had dirt floors. I never went down there!
