Common Green Forest Lizard looks like it has noticed the camera and is showing off its best side AS the name sounds, these were quite common in Sri Lanka and were not shy so you could get reasonably close for some good photos. And of course, they look like the iconic little dragon. Calotes calotes,Common Green Forest Lizard,Fall,Geotagged,Sri Lanka Click/tap to enlarge Promoted
