Madagascar Day Gecko

Madagascar Day Gecko (Phelsuma madagasceriensis madagascariensis) is a beautiful bright green gecko.

It is very large to be a gecko - it can grow more than 20cm long.
 


As other geckoes, it lacks eyelids, and has toe pads that enable it to climb on vertical surfaces (or even upside down).
