“The images for the book were taken over many years. You cannot go out to photograph specifically for this kind of book. The leaf-tailed gecko on the tree was difficult to find. They are exceptionally hard to spot on the trees of Madagascar, but fortunately I had a good guide who easily spotted them.”

 Heinrich, who estimates just one image in every 1,000 he took made it into the book, said: “It is sometimes the most trivial animal that can be the most dangerous. A tiny mosquito almost took my life, which was by far the most dangerous encounter I had.”
