Interesting picture! I wonder if those are the muscle fibers or fat that is stored within the tail?

That is so interesting. I used to keep salamanders when I was young and that brings me back to my childhood.
Thank you for sharing that!

Thanks folks. Another perspective on a common occurrence

The structure and mechanism in which they drop their tail to technically escape predators unharmed is exactly the same as Cresties (if you did not mention it was a leo it would have fooled me)

and a lot of other gecko species too

It looks like it’s out of this world!
