    Move to Noosa and you'll have hundeds of Asian house geckos in your house.

    Like them or not, they're here to stay, like cane toads unfortunately.

    I was looking for a particular thread and noticed I had not read this one. The lizard is a Southern spiny-tailed gecko Strophurus intermedius. It has a regrown tail with only a little of the base remaining of the original. You see some drops of the black sticky exudate the original section of tail. The dorsal patterning is very distinctive enough to provide a positive. Am not familiar with this species so cannot really tell you anything about them. Perhaps someone else can?
