This psychedelic gecko (Cnemaspis psychedelica) is "one of the more than 200 new species discovered in the Greater Mekong region (on an island in southern Vietnam) last year, environmental group WWF said . . ."

"The area's diversity is so astonishing that a new species is found every two days . . ."
