Rarely seen outside their native habitat, Gulbaru leaf-tailed geckos are notable for their highly effective camouflage which is in part aided by the spiny tubercles that cover every body part.
There are small tubercles on the Gulbaru leaf-tailed gecko’s body with larger tubercles on the base and sides of the tail. The very small spinose body tubercles of the Gulbaru leaf-tailed gecko are in marked contrast to the large spinose body scales of the ringed thin-tail gecko Phyllurus caudiannulatus.
