Was told by gentleman living there for the past 5 years that these have been here for the past 5 years. He thought they were a gecko and didnt know they were rare around this part of the state. He said more were up on the spoil banks of the coal mine, a large tract having been strip mined. He said the mined area was probably warmer than other areas, perhaps from the piles of coal. Has seen scores of these over the past years, so this was not someones pet that got loose, this appears to be a population that is able to survive the winter around here. Online research shows these grow 4-7 inch, but most of these appeared to be 3-4 inches.
