Persian Wonder Gecko (Teratoscincus keyserlingii)

Sharjah, UAE

 

This incredibly beautiful animal is extremely threatened in the UAE due to habitat loss. It is a large gecko with almost puppy-like features and has tissue paper thin and translucent skin, an extremely bizarre adaptation for a burrowing desert animal.
