Phelsuma antanosy, gecko to save !

Phelsuma antanosy or Gecko diurnal, from GEKKONIDAE family, is a species of reptile endemic to Madagascar, in the Anosy region. It is located only in low-lying littoral and transitional forests (less than 300m) at Ambatotsirongorongo and Sainte Luce (Ambatoatsinanana Protected Area), Taolagnaro, in the extreme south-east of Madagascar. A third population lived in Petriky but disappeared before 1994 due to habitat destruction. It is a diurnal and arboreal species. It measures up to 100 mm. Green in color, it is characterized by the presence of three red spots on the back. This gecko is both predator and prey. In order to escape his predators, he detaches his tail at a level of a precise fracture plane, contracting specific muscles. This tail end will move for a few minutes allowing it to escape. The tail will then grow back. The species needs Pandanus leptopodus as a specific habitat for its laying and palm species for its food. At night, it rests on or under the leaf of this species of Pandanus and a species of palm (Dypsis sp). It also eats insects such as mosquito species vectors of chikungunya. It is a pollinator at least of palm species and pandanus. Highly threatened by the disappearance of these plants, this gecko is classified by the IUCN among the species in critical danger. A conservation project for Phelsuma antanosy is underway, implemented by Tropical Biodiversity & Social Enterprise, in Taolagnaro, with the support of Auckland Zoo and Rio Tinto QMM.
