Gecko Eggs

Surprise, surprise!  When cleaning the interior of our boat stored for 7 months, Dorothy found Gecko (tiny lizzard) eggs.

Gecko's are extremely common down here in southern lattitudes even inside the boat.  They come in to eat anything they can but mostly looking for shelter and maybe an ant or small spider.  Often we find the dried skeleton of them here or there.........when they run out of food I guess.

However, we have NEVER seen their eggs until now and I doubt many others have.  Just a bit bigger than the bubbles in the non-skid rubber like material we use on our shelves.  4 open and one still whole!
