The Burmese Leaf-toed Gecko is a small gecko species native to Myanmar (Burma). The total length of their body rarely excees 5 cm. These geckos are a light grey-brown color on top, with a darker brown bottom that varies from gecko to gecko.

The body of the Burmese Leaf-toed Gecko is covered with small granules and many small round tubercles. Their heads have similar granules which are larger on their snouts. Their snouts are longer than the distance between their eyes and their small, round ear-opening.

Male Burmese Leaf-toed Geckos have six pre-anal pores arranges in an angular pattern. The females have six enlarged scales in the same area. Their tales are depressed with the bottom actually being flat instead of rounded.
