Fan-throat Sand-Lizard

Sitana ponticeriana


The fan-throat Lizard (Sitana ponticeriana) in Sri Lanka is restricted to warm lowland scrublands, particularly the drier coastal areas. It is similar to Otocryptis in appearance but differs in the throat colour of the males which in Sitana is blue and white (vs. red and yellow in Otocryptis) and the number of fingers in the hind foot; as Sitana has four (vs. five in Otocryptis).
