Lizard Up Close

    Newer Older

    Was lucky to find this co-operative little lizard and so have some pretty good shots of it. I was standing some 15 feet away. This is theOriental Garden Lizard, also called the Eastern Garden Lizard or Changeable Lizard. It is an insectivore and the male gets a bright red throat in the breeding season. They eat mainly insects and small vertebrates, including rodents and other lizards. Although they have teeth, these are designed for gripping prey and not tearing it up. So prey is swallowed whole, after it is stunned by shaking it about.

      This is beautiful, but I think it is an Iguana rather than a Chameleon.
