Tulear Velvet Gecko (Blaesodactylus sakalava)
These large arboreal geckos are nocturnal, but sometimes can be found basking during the day on tree trunks. This one was doing so, and ready to back down into its hole if it needed to.

Here is a list of all the reptiles and frogs I saw on this 2023 trip to Madagascar.
