17th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Uroplatus sikorae

This gecko that looks like a crocodile is a peculiar species of Madagascar. It only appears at night. Because of its protection mechanism, I was unable to find it. Its eyes are like a psychedelic planet, making it impossible to look away.
