A macro shot of the incredible eye of the #giantleaftailedgecko, endemic to #madagascar.  #leaftailedgecko and #flattailedgecko are part of the #uroplatus genus of reptiles. All are endemic to Madagascar and all are cited by #wwf as being on their Top 10 Most Wanted Species List due to alarming numbers being sold on the exotic pet market. Unfortunately, it is not only the unethical and unsustainable capturing that threatens these beautiful species, but also the worrying rate of destruction of their habitats through #deforestation.  These magnificent creatures striking eyes are developed due to their nocturnal lifestyle and need to focus on their fast-moving foods, insects. Uroplatus have arguably some of the most intricate and effective camouflage of all creatures on earth, blending in so well in their habitats that I myself have been not more than 30cms away from one and was still unable to see it! Larger species of uroplatus have the distinction in the animal kingdom of have the most teeth of any living bird, reptile or mammal on earth.  #natureislit #protectourwildlife @wwf @iammadagascar

Welcome to the gecko crew, a pair of Giant Leaf Tailed Geckos! This female is beautiful. Hopefully we will be able to get some offspring from these 2 at some point. #southernbellecrestedgeckos #gecko #geckos #geckosofig #geckosofinstagram #lizard #lizardsofinstagram #giantleaftailgecko #giantleaftailedgecko
