  1. I'm thrilled that you found, I had the exact same experience. In fact, I did not even see it when our guide directly pointed at it. Posted 4 years ago
    1. Well, I did not find him if our guide did not pointed at him.
      We were also lucky that he was a little bit awake.
      However I would also love to see how he can camouflage itself :)

''Uroplatus fimbriatus'' is a gecko which is found in eastern Madagascar and on the islands Nosy Bohara and Nosy Mangabe. These geckos live in tropical rain forests. They reach a total length of 330 mm.

A large nocturnal gecko, by day it plasters itself to a small tree trunk and rests head down. If disturbed it will raise its tail and head, open its mouth and scream.
