WW: Alien visitor

(This gold dust day gecko [Phelsuma laticauda] was spotted on a deck on Orcas Island, just over the Canada-US border. He's far from home [Madagascar], but I doubt he got here under his own steam.

Gold dust day geckos are popular pets, and also famous climbers, able to scale even plate glass. Though they've become a problem in the South Pacific, Orcas is likely in little danger, given its climate. Still, this little guy would be better off if someone could wrangle him and provide more appropriate living conditions.)

Appearing also on My Corner of the World.
