Ugliest lizard - Giant leaf-tailed Gecko

The giant leaf-tailed gecko is a gecko endemic to Madagascar. These geckos live in tropical rain forests. They reach a total length of 33 cm. It is a large nocturnal gecko. Because the eyes are extremely sensitive to light, 350 times more sensitive than the human eye, the species is able to see in colors even at night. By day it plasters itself to a small tree trunk and rests head down. If disturbed it will raise its tail and head, open its mouth and scream.
