Erdelen's Horned Lizard, not actually horned This is the least silly of the five species of Ceratophora, all of which live only in Sri Lanka. It has only the faintest hint of a silly nose appendage. Still a good-looking lizard though. Ceratophora erdeleni,Certophora erdeleni,Geotagged,Sri Lanka,Summer Click/tap to enlarge Species introCountry intro

  1. That bright green belly is spectacular! Posted 3 years ago
    1. I also like the big weirdly shaped scales on the sides. Posted 3 years ago
      1. I was thinking the same thing but was too lazy to type it, those scales on the side really give it a wonderful contrast. Posted 3 years ago

''Ceratophora erdeleni'', or Erdelen's horned lizard, is a species of lizard in the family Agamidae. The species is endemic to Sri Lanka. It has only a rudimentary "horn", that is occasionally missing altogether.
