Satanic Leaf Tailed Geckos

Satanic Leaf tailed geckos are some of Madagascar’s most unusual and magnificent creatures. They have the ability to make themselves almost invisible by becoming indistinguishable from fallen leaves or blend in to the tree’s bark. They are considered a vulnerable specie primarily caused by habitat loss due to deforestation across their native island of Madagascar. Since they are very popular as pets, illegal trade is another big concern for the existence of this reptile.
