Another gecko with mites

Common House Gecko (Hemidactylus frenatus)
Location: Kohala Coast, Big Island, Hawaii

I don't mean to wear out this topic of House Geckos with mites, but here is one more example.  Note the red dots on the ends of this lizard's toes.  They are the gecko mites.  By the way, this is the same species as in the previous photo, but this guy is wearing his daylight camouflage coloring.

You must have a sharp eye to spot these mites, especially since they don't like to hold still. Great catch Bobbie.
