Default Found a baby Gecko in my garden, North East U.K, please help identify him.

Hi All,


I love geckos and have had a couple in the past.
I was out in my garage, when i came back i saw a baby gecko.
I decided to catch him in my cricket pen.
He is very small and i have everything he needs.


I quickly made a home for him
heat mat, calcium, water, food etc etc


however i would like to identify him/her.


Please see the pic and let me know if you can help identify him/her.
ok so i can't add a picture, hmmm
He's brown and has two dark stripes along his body from his face to his tail. He does not have webbed feet.
I will try to post a pic of him on another forum,
or if i'm doing something wrong please advise.



thanks

Upload the pic to a hosting site, click direct link, then left click the postcard icon here at the top of the reply box. Clear the URL, right click & paste, then 'ok'. The pic should download in your reply.

Might be easier uploading it to Facebook or an other hosting site and just linking to it instead of trying to post it directly on here.

Is it definitely a gecko?

Guess you're not on reptile Facebook groups? Half of them would confuse a chicken with a Boa.

Based on the given description? Plus the fact it was catchable. And the location. Yeppers.

I mean; I just reckon it'd be easier to mistake a newt, away from water, as a 'baby gecko' than it would a lizard. A 'Common Lizard' would more likely be described as a " Baby Monitor Lizard ", surely?
