Flat-tailed House Gecko

Hemidactylus platyurus
(Schneider, 1797)
Lat Krabang, Thailand. February 16, 2016.

Another cosmopolitan gecko that has spread across the world. These geckos were on every structure, in every place I visited in Thailand, and I enjoyed watching them hunt insects at night (nearly every outdoor light has a few). They are quite variable in color and pattern.  Note the bifurcated tail on the specimen below.
