My friend, the Green Crested Lizard.

I had my tripod and camera set up to photograph spiders when this little fellow ran into view. It was so well camouflaged against the leafy green rainforest backdrop that I did not notice it till my fellow photographer friend alerted me to its presence. This is the Green Crested Lizard, a native species of Singapore which has been largely displaced by the non-native Changeable Lizard. It is, however, still common in patches of secondary rainforest but rarely spotted.
