In our area (and many others around Australia) these little guys are a regularly found in and around our homes.

Most often you'll see them running around the facia/eaves of your house and on the windows and screens.

Many nights we jump out of our skins as an almighty crash of a neighbourhood cat slams into the window flyscreen as it chases these little morsels. :rolleyes:

Someone told me they are actually an Indonesian variety of lizard that is a pest here in Aussie but I haven't confirmed that.

They are only about 100mm (4 in) long and makes funny little sounds as they call to each other.

This one was in our En suite so I decided to try to shoot him. They are quite difficult actually.

She wouldn't enjoy staying with me then ... we have about 20 of them running around the outside of the house and probably at least 1 inside any given evening :)

We hardly see spiders here though so perhaps these little guys are to thank for that?

Oh good with that! I was lucky to get that close to that one. They are very timid!

We could always leave a light on for you I guess but your kids will tease you ;)
