Uroplatus phantasticus by Mark Scherz

This is Breaking, or Break for short, she is a female U. Phantasticus.

Breaking is an unusual animal because her tail is all red with that charcoal tip.  Why is that unusual?  Well, it wasn’t that color when I bought her, but it has changed over time.  This is also her original tail, she has never dropped it (as Phants cannot regenerate tails anyway).  Her tail continues to change color gradually.
