the tropical house gecko, Afro-American house gecko or Cosmopolitan house gecko (Hemidactylus mabouia) is a species of house gecko native to sub-Saharan Africa.
In Papiamentu it is called pegapega. These nice animals are very shy. They do important service by eating lots of bugs that bother you in the tropics
This species is mainly nocturnal and can attain a maximum length, from snout to vent, of 12.7 cm (5 in). Its diet is varied, and includes animals such as spiders, scorpions, cockroaches, anoles and other geckos with the most important element being Orthoptera species.
The Tropical house gecko can be found predominantly in urban locations.
