These amazing little lizards!

Run, Run, Run
Earlier today I was sitting in front of my computer, when I heard a light splashing sound coming from outside. I looked out over the back of the yacht, and I saw two amazing little lizards playing the water.
Ah yes, the Basiliscus! Commonly known as the Jesus Lizard due to it's remarkable ability to run on water. I didn't realize that these guys were native to Central America (I never really thought about it period), so you can imagine my surprise seeing them in the flesh. I went out to get a closer look at them, but as soon as they saw me they dashed across the water and into the jungle. Next time my little reptilian friends, next time.
