September 2020: Gulbaru Leaf-Tailed Gecko

Gulbaru Leaf-Tailed Gecko (Phyllurus gulbaru)

Throughout September 2020, FaunaFocus will be featuring its first gecko species, the Gulbaru leaf-tailed gecko!

The Gulbaru leaf-tailed gecko is endemic to Patterson Gorge in the Paluma Range of northeast Queensland, Australia. This nocturnal, carnivorous hunter is notable for its effective camouflage. Despite its name, it does not have a flattened, leaf-shaped tail, but does have the ability to regenerate it.



Create art inspired by the Gulbaru leaf-tailed gecko and share it in the FaunaFocus Discord Server or on social media with #faunafocus. Learn about more ways to get involved with FaunaFocus!

Event Date Time (CDT)
