This one knows and is posing for the pic ahah. Nice spotting!
loving the vibrant colours!
@S Frazier yes sir its a rouxii i was bit confused :)
This spotting is Calotes rouxii. Psammophilus dorsalis superficially resembles this spotting but note, it has a much larger area of red/orange, it has shorter spines, and it does not have faint lines radiating from the eyes, as does this spotting. Here is a red/orange forest Calotes http://www.indianaturewatch.net/displayi... Most importantly, Psammophilus dorsalis is found on the east side of India http://maps.iucnredlist.org/map.html?id=... and this spotting is on the west within the range of Calotes rouxii. See range map here http://reptile-database.reptarium.cz/spe...
Its Psammophilus dorsalis male..nice find sir.!!
