Caption: Satanic leaftail gecko (Uroplatus phantasticus) on a leaf. Leaftail geckos are endemic to Madagascar and some of its surrounding islands. They are nocturnal and arboreal, spending most of their time during the day sleeping head-down amongst plant growth and trees. The satanic leaftail is one of only two species of leaftail gecko whose body has developed to resemble leaves, as a form of camouflage. Most actually resemble bark. Photographed in the Montagne des Francais Reserve, Madagascar.
