It's Tokay

A tokay gecko shows its true colors in the woods around Tangerang, Indonesia. Tokays are among the largest geckos and range from northeast India to the Malay Archipelago. Here, one of the tokay's ears can be seen as a small hole on the side of its head. It's possible, peering through the hole, to see through its head to the other side.
