    28 Aug 2014 | 2:07 pm
    The leaf-tailed gecko (Uroplatus fimbriatus) is a large tree-dwelling reptile found in Eastern Madagascar. It gets the name uroplatus – which means “flat tail” – from its broad leaf-shaped tail that can be snapped off and regrown if attacked by a predator. Walking through the forests of Madagascar fimbriatus may be difficult to spot.
