This Hawaiian reptile goes down the trunk of a palm tree next to us. Gecko easily survive in the wild even with a small population that would not be enough to mate and breed. They have the ability to lay eggs that were not fertilized by a male (requiring at least one female). A lot of human populations were apparently fond of them, accepting them in their household sometimes even as pets. And they would sometimes carry them on long trip, even if some geckos may also have traveled involuntarily.
Today the gecko imagery is very present on the Hawaiian islands.
