He's adorable! And he would have been gently placed outside by us. He's harmless!

Be careful picking those little lizards up. If you pick them up by their tail, the tail snaps off. They regrow another one, but do look funny for awhile. I had one in my garage, that my little 4 y/o grandson was going to "rescue". He nearly freaked when the tail came off in his hand. His dad had to explain how geckos have that trait as a self defense mechanism for their own safety and that the poor lizard could/would grow another. Still it was pretty traumatic for a 4 y/o.

Funny! This happened to us too, but it was my nephew - about 4 yrs old - who did it. We were walking to our car and a little lizard was sunning on the sidewalk. He thought he would put his foot on it's tail to catch it. The look on his face when the lizard ran away and the tail lay there twitching was priceless! The kids are now in their mid-20's and still talk about this!
