Photo of a green basilisk, a Central American lizard that can grow up to two feet long. The crests on this lizard’s head, back, and tail indicate that he’s male.
The green basilisk is nicknamed the Jesus Christ Lizard, due to its long toes that let it run across the surface of water for over 15 feet at a time. This adaptation is their main way of escaping predators.
