How many of you remember this guy?! It’s been a while since I’ve updated you guys about him. If you’ll recall when he arrived here with us he had a horrible infection and we didn’t think he was going to make it. He’s now completely healed, gaining weight, and living his best life. 🌿 I had held off on naming him since we didn’t know if he was going to survive. Now that he’s thriving he needs a special name. I’m sure many of you have noticed my “nature name” theme. Any ideas? 🌿 Facts: He is a Uroplatus Fimbriatus or commonly known as a leaf tailed gecko. They are native to Madagascar, but due to habitat loss are struggling in the wild. We are hoping to add a female to our family soon to work on helping conserve this sensitive species.

Fern or Moss

He is an amazing being. He does remind me of Spanish moss, that hangs from trees. This type of moss grows on bald cypress, so maybe Cypress?

Maple!!! Since he is a leaf tailed gecko

Or maybe a different type of tree leaf that he could easily blend into or one he would live on in the wild

I just think his eyes look like maple fresh tapped from a tree
