Magnificent lizard; its colors are amazing!!! Cool profile picture too =)
Great spotting..Your spotting is precious for Project Noah..!!
that third picture you linked to: http://picasaweb.google.com/lh/photo/rVt...looks just like this one and is in the exact place that i spotted this one.i think this one had just shed and had some bright colours.
I appreciate your caution. I am cautious too. There are apparently 9 subspecies with variations in coloration. The Wikipedia and EOL images are confusing when you encounter photos like this http://calphotos.berkeley.edu/cgi/img_qu... and this http://www.biodiversityexplorer.org/rept... and this http://picasaweb.google.com/lh/photo/rVt....
Amazing, reminescent link from reptiles to birds and their feathers ~ i could not even imagine a lizard this colorful ~ beyond stunning!i would like to see the mate, are these breeding colors and does the mate look similar? thank you,
great colors, nice spotting
I'm struggling to confirm it being a platysaurus intermedius. It has a green head and blue body where as the platysaurus intermedius has a blue head and green body with a different shaped head.
Yes it's got 3 votes! "Spottings are defined as identified when they have a scientific name entered in the scientific name field, a reference link added or a species suggestion with at least 3 votes." http://www.projectnoah.org/faq. So now the common and scientific names can be filled in (edited), and a reference link(s) applied.
Awesome Spotting!!!! Wonderful picture of an awesomely colored lizard!!!! :-D
Hey chun thank you. Yes that is the correct one. And yes I think the second lizard was its mate as it was protecting it whenever I got closer it would separate us by coming between us. Nice thank you.
Hey, it seems like there is a second lizard showing it's head only.
Colourful guy! Great spotting, and welcome to Noah. :)
Oh, so it is.
Chun I think you have it. I'm on a slow connection and I didn't see yours until after I suggested it :-)
Is it a Platysaurus intermedius ?
