Uroplatus henkeli

We were very lucky to have found this stunning female Uroplatus henkeli in the first week of our expedition, since their camouflage abilities are second to none. There are three Uroplatus species in Mahamavo: a leaf mimic, a twig mimic, and U. henkeli, which is a bark mimic, even down to the pattern of its eyes and the edge-disrupting frill which surrounds its entire body.
