I am mortally disgusted in their reaction to the Identification anyhow gggrrrr I repeat their words " IT IS NOT A GECKO, it is some other lizard" how rude, gosh people can be ignorant sometimes????? sorry for wasting your time guys :(

    Haha.. yes it does not really look like a conventional gecko. Especially if they are more accustomed to the white Asian house geckos. I wouldnt be too put off... some people would of just put it under their boot.

    Give them the latin name or common name and tell them to punch it into a google image search... put a case of ya preferred poison on the line as well.
