The mimicry satanic leaf-tailed gecko (Uroplatus phantasticus) was one of our target species during our mission in madagascar. This species is quiet common but really hard to spot in the wild. After several night or search we finally were lucky enough to spotted it. This wild individual was photographed during the night in the Mitsinjo natural reserve. Madagascar Finalist at Namur contest (FINN) and Big Picture 2018. Highly commanded at GDT contest 2018.
