Caption: Flying gecko (Ptychozoon kuhli) camouflaged on a leaf. This arboreal gecko cannot fly, but it escapes from predators by gliding from tree to tree. When gliding it extends its webbed toes and opens the flaps of skin that run down its flanks. It inhabits the forests of southeastern Asia, mainly eating insects and other small invertebrates.
