How cute is this Northern Leaf Tailed Gecko!

How cute is this Northern Leaf Tailed Gecko! 🦎

Okay, he might look a liiiittle mean 🤔, but we were assured that no human was injured while taking this photo. 📸

He's coloured this way because he's a master of disguise! 🙈 He hides on the trunks of trees so well, you'd hardly notice he's there!

These guys are nocturnal 🌙 tree dwellers in warm temperate and tropical rainforests 🌴 and wet sclerophyll forests, typically above 750m, in the Coastal and Great Dividing Ranges in North Queensland and south to Taree in New South Wales.

Notice his tail 🍃... Now you see where he gets his name from! 😉
