Animal of the day – 8/17/2010 – The Basilisk.

The Basilisk

The animal of the day is the Basilisk aka the Jesus Lizard. (Did you know: This isn’t a mythical creature, but a genus of South American lizard that can run so fast, it can run on water! It has recently been introduced to Florida, where is seems to be doing quite well. No crowing of a rooster at dawn will stop this lizard! Well, unless the rooster eats him…That’d show him.)

  1. Wow. I really expected a picture of the Basilisk in the HP movie…to my surprise, it’s just a lil’ fella that walks on water! He’s awesome!

    • Same me too! That Harry Potter one was huge (and scary!)! This LITTLE dude looks like a… Gary. Go Gary go! Hey, who wants to race him. Not me!
