The Mediterranean Gecko (Hemidactylus turcicus) in Pennsylvania, USA

Herpetological Review 50(3), 2019 GEOGRAPHIC DISTRIBUTION 537. Herein, we report the first documentation of reproducing Mediterranean Gecko (Hemidactylus turcicus) colonies in Penn-sylvania and, to date, the northernmost confirmed locations in the eastern USA. Hemidactylus turcicus has spread widely throughout the USA since it was initially documented from Key West, Flori-da, in the first decades of the 20th century (Fowler 1915; Stejneger 1922).
