Trusting in its great camouflage, this striking lizard stayed completely frozen even when we approached it. One of our local friends picked it up and moved it to another tree, where it began to change from green to yellowish (image 3) and finally to a deep brown (images 4 and 5)! It measured about a foot and a half long, including the tail.
Seen at an elevation of 1800m at the foot of Sumatra's Mt. Kerinci, the tallest volcano in SE Asia, in the Kerinci Seblat National Park.
I think it's Dendragama boulengeri, but not 100% certain!
