  1. Does the one on the right have a tiny tail? Or, is it just the angle? Posted 2 years ago
    1. Well spotted, I think it's a tail that is regrowing. Posted 2 years ago
      1. It must be a tough process to avoid predation and keep its balance until its tail grows back! Hope it made it <3. Posted 2 years ago

''Phelsuma lineata'', the lined day gecko, is a species of diurnal gecko native to Madagascar. It has also been introduced to RĂ©union.

This species as described appears to be a conglomeration of many distinct forms; three of these are currently recognized subspecies , but others could be separate taxa that should be elevated to species status as was ''Phelsuma dorsivittata''.
