This has got to be the coolest gecko I have ever seen (and touched) in real life! I was scanning a tree trunk for any potential macro subject(s) when, from out of nowhere, this amazing Kuhl's Flying Gecko (Ptychozoon kuhli), landed onto the very same tree in front of me!
Look at the cool patterns, shapes and colors on this gorgeous gecko! It was wagging its tail much like a puppy too at first.
Kuhl's Flying Gecko (Ptychozoon kuhli). Location: a forest in Selangor.
After taking like many many shots of this gecko, I thought to myself, why not try to touch it, so I did. Surprisingly, it was quite docile.
I even put it on my hand :).
You can see the flaps on the sides of its body, flattened tail and webbed feet in this image, and in the last one as well.
It was hard to say goodbye to this beauty, but I knew it belonged in the wild so I let it go!
