Do not judge and you will not be judged.
Forgive and you will be forgiven.
Give and it will be given to you.
Luke 6: 37-38

3 incredible animals in Madagascar!

First,  attempt to find the giant leaf-tailed gecko. Unlike chameleons, which change colour to communicate and convey emotions, some geckos alter their appearance to make them hard to spot - partly as a means of defence, but also to allow them to catch prey. Chameleons want to be conspicuous; geckos want to hide.
The slow change in the body colour occurs when cells bearing differently coloured pigments beneath the lizard's transparent skin either expand or shrink. 
Not all the 2,000 species of gecko, found in warm climates around the world, can change colour. 
But they do possess the species' other qualities, such as self-cleaning toe pads that enable them to climb vertically or walk upside down. The only surface to which a gecko cannot stick is Teflon. Source

Second, the most famous of these animals is the lemur, but unfortunately they are in danger of becoming extinct due to deforestation. Less than 10% of the original forest cover actually
 exists today.

The Blue Coua is a species of cuckoo endemic to Madagascar. As the name suggests, what makes it unique – and incredibly beautiful – is the striking blue color of the feathers and the eye!
Praise the Lord, for his amazing creation. Sometimes we forget that in other countries, animals are extremely different to our local species but however the similarities are striking! In my opinion, our Father has a sense of humour!
