I Just Love Watching This Little Lizard Go!

The basilisk lizard has one of the most unique abilities in all of the Amazon. By pedaling its long, flat feet, this lightweight reptile can run across water surfaces at incredible speeds.

Check out the video to see this amazing “superpower.”

This lizard, like all creatures in the Amazon, is in danger of losing its habitat due to a drying climate and deforestation. Celebrate Earth Day and donate to protect Mother Earth and the many species of reptiles, primates, amphibians, and birds that call the Amazon rainforest home.
