It's easy to see how this lizard got its name. With its cat-like eyes and marbled pattern, it certainly looks like the leopard for which it was named. The Cat Ba leopard gecko (Goniurosaurus catbaensis) is found only in Cat Ba Island National Park in northern Vietnam. Scientists believe the species should be classified as a rare and endangered species. (David S McLeod/WWF Greater Mekong)
