Brown Basilisk


Brown Basilisk

If I have identified this animal correctly, it is a young Brown Basilisk (basiliscus vittatus). It was found in the resort I was staying at in the Riviera Maya area of Mexico. These lizards have the ability to run on only their hind legs. They are so quick they can even run across the surface of a pool of water giving them the nickname ‘Jesus Lizard’.
