First one seems as hemidactylus mabouia to me, but not sure. Second is Thecadactylus rapicauda

Could you post your best possible pic of just the body, head and legs of the first specimen?

Cheers, Auke

I'm fairly certain that the first one is a juvenile Lepidodactylus lugubris (Gekkonidae), a species recently introduced in Suriname and known to occur on the Brownsberg. A better view of the back (to see whether the scales are all equally sized or come in two sizes) should bring certainty.

Cheers, Auke :-)
