Uroplatus ebenauiUroplatus ebenaui

 

U.ebenaui were originally discovered in Nosy Be, but can be found throughout the northern forests of Madagascar. Inhabiting the lower shrub areas approx 1-2m above the forest floor, they are one of the smallest Uroplatus species, reaching a maximum length of only 4in. This species very much resembles U.phantasticus, mainly distinguished buy it's diminutive tail. Few "true" U.ebenaui make it into the hobby while most of the specimens we find are actually U.sp.nov.aff.ebenaui. They can be easily distinguished by the color present in the back of their throats; "true" U.ebenaui posses a black coloration while U.sp.nov.aff.ebenaui sports a uniform pink coloration.
