Green Garden Lizard

This is a common type of lizard found in Sri Lanka. I took this photo in Mulawella, Sinharaja rainforest.

He is posing for the camera! Isn't he?

Kirigalpoththa said...

Thanks. I still have to post one for your tag :)

'drumming his fingers' - Oh yes he is sure in a bit of a hurry...
....There were wild flowers in this particular tree and quite a few insects and flies were hovering around those flowers. This guy was having a great time feasting on those bugs. So although he was posing, he was bit impatient as I barged in for the photo shoot during his lunch time :D

Yep, he had a very attractive color almost luminous green!

Is he? Infact I was kissing distance from him :D

Yep he is. Thanks :)

He sure has those photogenic looks for a model :D

Thanks all for your wonderful comments!!

He is cute!

Thanks a lot for sending me the html code. My life got lot easier and it worked very well. :D

George said...

He certainly is a very handsome and very colorful character. This is a great picture.

Kirigalpoththa said...

Yes, a good observation! He still has bits and pieces of his old skin. I think the luxurious colour and the eye strip is cos it is brand new skin. Thanks a lot for your comments :)

Yes I know some keep them as pets too. Are you one of them? Tks a lot for your comments!:)

Glad it was helpful to you! Yep you have done it quite well! I'm no web designer but let me know if you need any help in future :)

Yes he has a very attractive colour and he is quite a chracter too :) Thanks a lot for your comments!

Me-shak said...

I would love to keep one as a pet, I haven't given it serious thought. Now that you have mentioned it and poisoned my mind :P I might consider, and if Ammi asks, I'll tell her you told me to:D

I got a few pictures with one i managed to charm:)

Mumbai Paused / Johnny Nutcase,
Thanks a lot for your interesting comments!!

Glennis said...

Such a pretty lizard, we have plain green forest lizards but they are seldom seen. He is beautiful.

Kirigalpoththa said...

I think this one also usually has a more darker complexion. But he has just shed his skin and that is why it looks so bright!
Thanks for your comments!!
