Resumo

O processo de regeneração caudal em lagartos nem sempre ocorre perfeitamente, podendo ocasionar algumas anormalidades como o surgimento de caudas empenadas ou supranumerárias. Aqui relatamos os primeiros casos de bifurcação da cauda na lagartixa anã Lygodactylus klugei e trazemos observações sobre as almofadas adesivas caudais nos indivíduos com cauda bifurcada. Nossos registros representam um novo caso de bifurcação caudal em espécies de lagartos que apresentam caudas com especializações funcionais e estruturas morfológicas elaboradas, sendo os primeiros registros desse tipo de anomalia para o gênero Lygodactylus.
