he's very pretty!
wow! you're lucky, it's not everyday that you could snap a shot on such beauty.My Camera Critters
Great photos!! As to what it is..you got me. Boom & Gary of the Vermilon River, Canada.
Not a clue, but it is a cool looking lizard. It sure does have a long tail. Great photos.
Gorgeous captures.My Critter post, please come and see.
Not just beautiful colors, but lovely pattern too. I have no idea what he is.
I know the Oriental Garden Lizards are often called the "bloodsucker lizards" as well because their heads are often bright red after a battle or during the breeding season perhaps that is the difference. Just an educated guess though.Great pictures of it.
It is absolutely wonder.;)
Any ideas? No. Is it one of the coolest lizards I've ever seen? Definitely.
A lovely Lizard. We don't have many in the UK so many thanks for sharing this little beauty.
AmilaNo doubt about it. Your identification is correct and it is Common Garden Lizard (Calotes versicolor)For more details - http://biodiversityofsrilanka.blogspot.com/2010/09/common-garden-lizard-calotes-versicolor.html. Like most lizards it also can change its body color up to certain extent. It is believed that bright colors like red can attract some insects on them it can prey on.
It's very colorful, we sure don't have lizards like that in California.
I have no idea what it is but it sure is beautiful!
Cool capture, Amila!It looks like a male oriental garden lizard, but those patterns on his tail looks somewhat different than the once I have seen. I guess it’s time to call the experts .. ;)
Hi friends, Thank you all for the feedback!:)Bushana,Thanks buddy for the confirmation of ID! :)
Wow he is really pretty. I never get to see too many lizards, maybe one or two a year. You're lucky to have something this pretty in your garden.
No idea what species it is but it's a pretty nice animal to photograph that's for sure...........
