We were cleaning up the downstairs patio, sweeping, watering, and moving potted plants around, when we found this little guy. He was the size of a small grasshopper, maybe a cricket, I say was, because yes, Mike had to kill him. Scorpion, or alacran, as Fernando taught me.
This one was IN the house, gecko, lizard thing, probably 4" long. He is the biggest that we've seen at this house. We saw a bigger one at the San Alejo house one day we were there visiting. They eat Mosquitos and other bugs, so they can live. Don't really want them in the house, but hey, they were here first. After his picture was taken he scampered into the ceiling.
Plenty of doves, we have at least 3 nests, they make a mess, and are noisy flapping around all the time, but they probably eat bugs too, so they can stay.
