I agree on Hemidactylus mabouia for the first specimen, but could you post a high quality pic of the body of the second one? Also, please post just one species per thread.

Cheers, Auke

The second specimen seems to be Lepidodactylus lugubris (Gekkonidae) rather than Hemidactylus mabouia (also Gekkonidae), based on its smooth back with no apparent large scales. Both species are introduced invasive species in the Guianas, but L. lugubris was first mentioned for Suriname in 2015, while H. mabouia has been here for decades.

Cheers, Auke :-)
