The Leaf-toed gecko ("Phyllodactylus xanti") is an American gecko with vertical pupils and immovable eyelids, and leaf-like toe pads. It has dorsal granular scales interspersed with tubercles, and a brownish, grey or pinkish dorsum with a light venter.

It often squeaks when handled; it has a very fragile tail which is readily lost. This gecko is between 2.5 and 6.2 cm long.
