    wow... I kept looking at it thinking you were about to tell us you are a woodcarver, and I was thinking "why would he carve such a beautiful relief in such an out-of-the-way spot?" I can't make my eyes accept that that lizard is not part of the wood!

    Very cool! Appears to be a Ptychozoon or "flying gecko" (though gliding or 'parachuting' is really more accurate). They have webbing between their toes that they use to glide from tree to tree.

    I almost got one of these from a guy I knew but, alas, didn't have a tank for it.

    That is a beautiful Gecko, he does look like he was carved from the wood.
    We just got back from the east coast where they have curly tailed lizards. They are much bigger than our little lizards topping out at about 9", they curl their tails up on their back when they run.
