Photo: A leaf-tailed gecko (Uroplatus sameiti) from private collection.


A leaf-tailed gecko (Uroplatus sameiti) from private collection. This species is camouflaged to look like moss and lichen on the trunks of tropical trees. The dermal fringe (the tassels around the edges) allows them to blend in so well that even their shadows are broken up by it.
