Screamer 2 by AngiWallace Screamer 2 by AngiWallace
Wow , I never expected one of my pics to be a daily deviation!
This is my male Giant common leaf tailed gecko - Uroplatus fimbriatus. I have kept a pair for about a year now and only seen this once. I think its a definsive posture. I walked into the room and it was already like this, so I grabbed my camera and took some quick snaps.
I have made a print available for those who have requested it.
Thank you for all the favourites and comments everyone.

Screamer 2 by =AngiNelson Now tell me, can you say "wassup!?!?!?" lol I had to, it just fits! What a shot, completely priceless, talking about something I can see being used commercially, this fits the bill! Geico ain't got jack on this guy! ( Suggested by meihua and Featured by kkart )

Reminds me tons of a Tokay Gecko... more freaky, though.

I'm not going to lie...
if I had a gecko and walked in my room to see it looking like that, I would freak out a bit xD

but this is a really cool pic, nonetheless :] !

Aw man, jealous. I want some Fimbs! Gorgeous gecko. You're right, it is a defensive position. It seems that it might have other purposes too though - henkeli sometimes do it without threat or apparent threat. Gorgeous gecko you've got there :)

Wow, that is one freaky, hilarious looking gecko. If I'd seen it as a drawing, I would never imagined it to be based on a real animal. Truth is stranger than fiction.
