When I saw this creature in the Princess of Wales Conservatory at Kew Gardens, I thought it was an Iguana. In fact it is a Chinese water dragon. ( physignathus cocincinus).


On the site of Kew gardens ( ) :

There are about nine water dragons that live and breed freely in Zone 1. They provide a natural means of controlling unwanted insects in the Princess of Wales Conservatory but tend to keep out of sight of visitors.
