Is it a leaf? Is it tree bark? No, it’s the Satanic leaf-tailed gecko. Cleverly disguised as a rotting leaf, Madagascar’s camouflage king has red
eyes, pointy horns and a taste for night hunting: it’s nature’s most devilish deceiver. The twisted body and veiny skin echo the detail of a dry leaf, which ensures the gecko blends in with its
forest home. The mottled tail appears to have sections missing, as though it has withered over time. This mini-monster epitomises survival of the fittest, having adapted gradually to become
today’s extraordinary leaf impersonator.

There is no need to roll out the red carpet at Daxia in China’s Gansu Province. The jaw-dropping rocky landscape is naturally
red from a build-up of sandstone over many millions of years, while the rainbow effect comes from colourful mineral deposits. Sandstone and red mineral deposits were compressed into multi-coloured layers of rock. Movement of the giant plates that form Earth’s crust pushed, cut, and folded the layers. The name Danxia means “rosy clouds” in Chinese.
In 2015 amateur photographer Martin Le-May shot this image in Hornchurch Country Park, London, UK, but the picture doesn’t tell the full story. The
weasel attacked the woodpecker and refused to give up even when the bird took flight. An aerial scrap ensued before the weasel tumbled and the woodpecker escaped. A sign now marks the spot where
the sensational snap was taken.
