Does this look like the Lizard?
Your picture did not post. If you want you can send it to [email protected] and the moderator can forward it on to me. I did post a picture of a juvenile for you to look at. Joan
The picture just came through. It looks like a new hatchling of a Mediteranian house gecko.
They not do very well in captivity. They are nocturnal and need crickets or flightless fruit flies to eat. As small as the one you have found it may not be eating, but is probably still absorbing the yolk sac. If you should decide to try and keep it, you will need a 10 gallon tank with a screen lid. an under the tank heater. They eat at night so the activity level during the day is minimal. To help this one survive, you may want to put plain paper towels mositened in the bottom of a container to help with growth and shedding. mist the area several times a day since it will drink off the sides rather than out of a dish. You will need the flightless fruit flies and pinhead crickets dusted with calcium as a diet.
My honest suggestion would be to release this little Gecko and should you want to keep a reptile get a nice Leopard gecko. The wild caught lizards carry parasites and usually do not have a long life span unlike a domestic rasied gecko. Joan
