I always thought this was a common gecko, but I now believe it is a brown anole, in this case a female. These guys are plentiful here in Florida, but they are actually new to the area arriving here from Cuba or a nearby island. They are quite happy here. Beware, they are ferocious stalkers and avid hunters with lightning reflexes, and they can change colors a bit. With little suctions on their feet, they can climb on anything including glass. We befriend them because they eat little bugs, spiders and worms. They are good to have around. Prehistoric no doubt. Fun to watch the males court the ladies.
