The Amazing Camouflage of the Mossy Leaf-Tailed Gecko

This is Madagascar’s mossy leaf-tailed gecko. With the ability to grow up to six inches in length, these creatures possess an incredible camouflage that allows them to blend right into their forest habitats. They can scatter their shadows, making their outline nearly invisible to predators. Unfortunately, due to deforestation and increasing demand in the pet trade, the future of the species is under threat.
