The Moorish Wall Gecko (scient. Tarentola mauritanica) is a small species of lizard that reaches a total length of 16cm and can be found on the island of Crete.

The harmless Moorish gecko is frequently found in ruins, rocky surfaces, trees, and it often visits homes. It is a generally nocturnal reptile, which feeds on insects and arthropods. It is attracted by artificial light as its beloved insects are gathered there. Thus, you will meet it very frequently next to lights, lurking for mosquitoes and flies.

It has very weird legs that look like suction cups that help that climb everywhere. Its colors are whitish. Female geckos lay 1-2 eggs, 2-3 times per year.
