gecko common in the Philippines
This is one of the world's smallest reptiles that is no bigger than a child's thumbnail.
The incredible creature, believed to be a typical house gecko common in the Philippines, is not your typical first pet for children, but amateur snapper Corin Lenisco couldn't resist his charm.
The 14-year-old has always been excited at the sight of the mini lizards and has always been intrigued by their diminutive lives.
And after catching this cheeky critter to scare his sister, Corin decided to keep the lizard as a pet - as feeding and cleaning chores prove more than manageable for a teenager.
Corin, from the Philippines, said: 'My older sister has always been afraid of lizards ever since she was young so every time I see a lizard I try to catch it and scare her.
'I was just walking around the house when I saw the lizard and I moved to catch it right away. But because it was such a baby lizard I didn't think my sister would be too scared so I decided to keep him as my own.'
When first caught the size lizard was half the size of Corin's thumbnail - and after a year it has only grown to the size of his palm.
