Leaf-tailed gecko

Leaf-tailed geckos are lizards that live only in Madagascar, an island off the coast of Africa.

Leaf-tailed geckos are nocturnal, meaning they are active at night when they hunt for insects. During the day, these geckos rely on their camouflage to blend in with their surroundings and hide from predators.

Leaf-tailed geckos are popular in the exotic pet trade.

The Mongabay Kids site (kids.mongabay.com) aims to help children learn about rainforests and the environment. This site is still under development and I am working to add additional content as time permits. If you have comments or are interested in submitting educational content for the site, please feel free to contact me.

The site is available in many different languages, including Portuguese, Chinese, French, Spanish, Japanese, and German.
