Three-banded Parachute Gecko

Ptychozoon trinotaterra
Brown, 1999
Nakhon Ratchasima Province, Thailand. February 27, 2016

Dave found this gecko wedged in a crevice under one of the pavilions at Khao Yai National Park. The forests of southeast Asia host a number of animals that glide from tree to tree, including frogs, snakes, and lizards like this one.  Body, limbs, feet, and tail are all modified airfoils to facilitate a falling glide.
