This gecko from Madagascar has feet that "contain about a billion microscopic points that bind to individual molecules, allowing the animal to walk upside down on smooth surfaces." Photo credit to Piotr Naskrecki, from a book of macrophotography, "The Smaller Majority," which I hope to review here next week.
The generic name, Uroplatus, is a Latinization of two Greek words: "ourá" (οὐρά) meaning "tail" and "platys" (πλατύς) meaning "flat". Its specific name phantasticus is the Latin word for "imaginary" based upon the gecko's unique appearance..The photo enlarges nicely with a click.
