    What a cool looking lizard. Great shot!

    Is that his "cooling fin", or is he cruising for a lady lizard?

    Wow, what beautiful colors, Jitenda! I don't know Mike. Perhaps it is a defensive posture used to frighten nosey photographers?

    You could very well be right Frank, as he certainly does appear to have a bit of an
    attitude...my kinda lizard..

    thanks everybody..
    this lizard displays the fan during breeding period , but it's erect posture seems to be on purpose to scare the 'nosy photographer' ( that's me ) away...

    Great shot Jitendra. He's beautiful. You caught him at a great angle to show off his posture &, of course, attitude. Do they bite?
