Hebrew 'anaqah , from 'aanaq "to groan." Gosse refers it to the house mouse, from its squeak. Rather the gecko, which croaks as a frog and has feet so formed as to walk on the ceilings of houses which it enters (Leviticus 29:30, Speaker's Commentary). It is enumerated with unclean creeping things, which favors the view that some lizard is meant.
