Native to Yemen and Saudi Arabia, this reptile is often called the cone-head chameleon owing to a casque on its head that grows with age. Colouration can be affected by an animal’s social status, with lowly members sporting duller hues.
The plumed basilisk (Basiliscus plumifrons) is very territorial, and a single male can defend land containing large numbers of female mates. It is known for its ability to run short distances across water, giving it the nickname the ‘Jesus Christ lizard’.
