Hola,

first one is an Egyption Grasshopper....Anacridium aegyptium... The eyes give it away as a migratory locust at about the same size doesn't have stripy eyes...

I'll give some other forumers a chance for the other two.......

Hi ValL,

1st - Mosaicus til Oops sorry, Clives already done that one.

2nd - It's between either Turkish or Moorish gecko and I reckon it's a Moorish gecko, Tarentola mauritanica, Sp. Salamanquesa comĂșn as it's head is broad and fingers are wide. Does it only have 2 claws on each foot? (Thanks Nick!
