This is not a gecko from Komodo. It's most likely a Tropiocolotes sp. from one of his trips to North Africa or the Middle East.

Amazing 😊 What kind of lizard ?

Yes, as Deb said above, the cutest little creature ever 😊

Thats the cutest little creature ever x

I'd lose him within 0.0001 of a second tbh... but I'd enjoy the entirety of that 0.0001 second

So perfectly formed and diminutive. Lols. From Komodo we know what ti is not..

Wouldn’t be getting that close to a wild Lacey but that’s just me.

Cameron Warby 😻😻😻

There's always been Lacey's at that beach. I was living there in the mid 90's and no barbecue was safe from an inspection by the reptile patrol!

As a kid in the early 80s this was always a great spot for these guys- love them!

Kristelle Kay Johnstone wow 😍

Omg what a gorgeous Lacey πŸ’œπŸ¦Ž
