R. chahoua are sometimes called mossy, prehensile-tailed geckos. Their patterns and colors often camouflage them well. They also have no crest and rounded heads, and their bodies look like and feel like lichens. There are people cross-breeding cresties and chahouas, in part for better coloring, but be aware of this if you come across a crestie missing its crest or a radically-colored chahoua so you know what you are dealing with. I am against this practice personally, so I do no such cross-breeding here.|
