From Wikipedia, the Common Basilisk is a lizard found in Central and South American rainforests. It is also known as the Jesus Lizard for its ability to run on the surface of water.
I saw this lizard here for the first time and thought it was a recently released exotic pet.
But each time I told someone of my find they said that they were common here, been here for years etc.
Oh well, so much for getting a scoop shot and it's a good thing I don't make a living at this.
