|The Brown Basilisk or Striped
Basilisk (Basiliscus vittatus) is one species of basilisk lizard. They
are native to Panama, Belize, northwestern Colombia and Costa Rica, but
have been introduced into the U.S. state of Florida as a feral species.
They have the nickname "Jesus Lizard" because when fleeing from a predator,
they can run on water.
Not poisonous but will bite
to defend itself.
