While most of us prefer to keep cool in the hot weather, some would rather enjoy the heat. The cold blooded lizards, for example, always appreciate a bit of sunshine.
The Changeable Lizard (Oriental Garden Lizard) is often seen sunning itself on tree branches
or in open fields.
As reflected in its name, the colour of its skin changes from time to time. Normally they look a bit dull.
During breeding season the male’s head and shoulders turn bright orange and his throat black.
However, sometimes the temptation to sunbathe can be irresistible, as it was for this Grass Lizard basking in the middle of a road.
