Had to "move" a few of these Geckos over the years. The woman in my family tend to run a mile except my wife who has lived in Australia. They are harmless, never seen them longer than 6 inches.(in the Philippines). Just pick up.
We have Just come from 2 years on a cattle station in Western Australia where the sand goanna in the picture below is a daily occurrence.They come out around midday to sun themselves as they don't have temperature regulation. These can be tamed but also somewhat dangerous in the wrong situation, (sharp claws and filthy teeth, you can however get them to feed meat from your hand.When they latch on to you the bite takes weeks to heal.Hope this is of interest to you.
this is the fella .....imagine seeing this guy under your desk.
The last trip (FEB 2018) we toured Siquijor , Dumaguete , Samal and other wonderful places. Making friends in the Philippines brings the most joy and satisfaction than anything else. I spent several days on a motorcycle (not scooter) and really had a great time. I am lucky because my Philippine family is so wonderful and smart. We are counting the days till we arrive for an extended more permanent stay.
