【Harry's wand & fans, Pacific house gecko (Hemidactylus frenatus) 8/10 哈利的魔杖與粉絲-疣尾蜥虎】

Why is the balcony so quiet today? It turned out that a Pacific house gecko came out to sunbathe. He was lying on Harry Potter's magic wand for basking in the sun. When he saw me, he quickly turned to the lower surface of the wand. With this carnivore stationed, I cannot hear other insects and birds on my balcony today.

今天陽台為什麼很安靜呢?原來是疣尾蜥虎/仙尪仔(壁虎)出來曬太陽。原本他趴在哈利波特的神奇魔法棒上曬太陽,看到我後趕快轉到魔法棒的下表面。有這隻肉食性動物駐守,今天我的陽台聽不到其他蟲鳴鳥叫。

He seems unhappy. His serrated pupil only opens a small slit. Is this staring at me? 他似乎不開心。他的鋸齒狀瞳孔只打開一道細縫。這樣算是在瞪我嗎?

Pacific house gecko / Common house gecko (Hemidactylus frenatus)

Pacific house geckos like other most geckos are nocturnal, hiding during the day and foraging for insects at night. Sometimes, I can see its activities during the day. It is the only reptile among common animals on my balcony. Its large eyes with serrated pupils fascinated me. I don't know what other animals have serrated pupils like it.

與其他大多數壁虎一樣,太平洋房屋壁虎是夜間活動的,白天躲藏,晚上覓食昆蟲。尾巴突出的顆粒,可以用來分辨疣尾蜥虎或無疣蜥虎。偶爾白天也會看到牠出來活動。牠是常出沒我陽台生物中,唯一的爬蟲類。牠的一雙鋸齒狀瞳孔的大眼睛讓我很著迷。我不知道其他什麼樣的動物也像牠一樣有鋸齒狀瞳孔。
