Indian kangaroo lizard, is a diurnal, terrestrial, insectivorous agamid lizard, endemic to the Western Ghats of South India.
The preferred habitat of O. beddomii is moist leaf litter on the forest floor of both evergreen and deciduous forests, but it may also climb onto low tree trunks and shrubs The distribution of O. beddomii is highly fragmented in patches of dense forest in the Western Ghats from and south of the Shencottah Gap. The species appears to be sensitive to human disturbance.
I could spend lot of time for watching, but it kept standing with minimum movements. According to IUCN Otocryptis beddomii is Endangered (IUCN 3.1). Please watch: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1V3T_jRm...
