Oriental Garden Lizard Lizard (India)

This is an Oriental Garden Lizard, also known as Eastern Garden Lizard, Bloodsucker, Changeable Lizard or Crested Tree Lizard (Calotes versicolor).

Shortly before I took this photo, this same lizard had a bright orange color.

Changeable Lizards are related to iguanas (which are found only in the New World). Unlike other lizards, Like chameleons, they can move each of their eyes in different directions and change color.

For more info about this lizard, read en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Oriental_garden_lizard
