This is a lined leaf-tailed gecko (Uroplatus lineatus
) from Madagascar. It looks for all the world like a model of a gecko carved from wood. That's the camouflage it has evolved to survive in a bamboo
forest. Very cool.

Humorously, this looks more 'Created' to me...ReplyDelete
Of course it's created.Delete
It's a biological self-creation process through DNA manipulation through thousands of years.
This is why there are so many different species of life, because every kind of them had different needs and targets in life. This is pure evolution.
