Austin TX Real Estate - Hill Country Austin Lakeway Homes for Sale: Austin TX Creatures- Gecko of Luck

Austin TX Creatures- Gecko of Luck

This lovely, Lucky, creature was found inside my home a couple of days ago.  We let it outside.  It is rumored that if you see geckos in or around your home, it means good luck.  I sure could use some good luck on a lot of issues these days, so I'm crossing my fingers and holding my breath!!

The picture was taken with my camera phone so the image is not the greatest. I tried to make it sharper, but whenever I increased the size, he was very blurry...

Hi Donna... it sure looks like a cute little Gekko... perhaps since it's a toddler Gekko it will bring good luck for Alyssa!

Gecko's are cool. What is the difference between a gecko and a lizard? I use to call them Lizards but I'm hearing the word Gecko more often. Is that because of that commercial you think?

I like gecko's Donna, you had to be pretty quick with that camera phone! Look at the marking on his tail, fabulous.

If you see a gecko out here, it's because you have insurance from Geico -- LOL.

Steve, Perhaps you're right!

John, I think Lizards are bigger and uglier.  I think of the big Iguana lizards when I hear the word lizard.

Cynthia, He was moving really fast which is also why the picture is blurry. I took 5 and this was the least blurry from him running so fast.

Russel, Cute.
