    Lined leaf-tail gecko / gestreepte bladstaartgekko (Uroplatus lineatus) - Exotic Reserve Peyrieras, Madagascar

    Captive specimen.

    For those who like the biological details:
    Click a link and you'll go to the Flickr photo page for that rank in the biological classification.

    There is still quite some debate within the scientific world on how to classify the suborders and infraordes within Squamata. Here I've joined the snakes and geckos together in one suborder (in a previous blog post I placed the snakes classically still in their own suborder).

    Phylum: Chordata; Vertebrates / Gewervelden
    Class: Reptilia; Reptiles / Reptielen
    Order: Squamata; Scaled Reptiles / Schubreptielen
    Suborder: Scleroglossa; Monitors, Geckos, Snakes, Skinks / Varanen, Gekko's, Slangen, Skinken
    Infraorder: Gekkota; Geckos, Blind Lizards, Legless Lizards / Gekko's, Blinde Hagedissen, Slanghagedissen
    Family: Geckonidae; Geckos / Gekko's
    Subfamily: Gekkoninae;
    Genus: Uroplatus; Leaf-tail or Leaf-tailed Geckos / Bladstaartgekko's
    Species: Uroplatus lineatus; Lined Leaf-tail Gecko / Gestreepte Bladstaartgekko

      looks like a stick of wood. What wonderful camouflage with that textured and colored skin. Well done.
