I once owned a Day Gecko like this one. They are very fun to watch with their vibrient colors and adorable personalities. I would catch moths for him and watch him climb around the tank after them. Once he caught one he would move his head from side to side to show off what he caught to the other lizards in the tank. Kind of like he was saying "Na na na na na you didn't get it, I did!".

A large nocturnal gecko, 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. The generic name, Uroplatus, is a Latinization of two Greek words: 'ourá' meaning 'tail' and 'platys' meaning 'flat'.
