Castor plant n camouflaging lizard:
Sharing d pics of this beautiful creature, I saw today resting on a castor plant. I loved his camouflage.


The lizard is very nice looking, but plant is not castor. Any clue about the plant?


It is a juvenile Garden Calotes [Calotes versicolor]. 


This is a Calotes sp. most probably Oriental Garden LizardCalotes versicolor of Agamidae family.


Agree with …. The plant is not Castor.


One of the plant is calatropis!!!!!! we can see the typical phylotaxy.
The other may be a member of Acanthaceae a common weed. One shoot is showing minute inflorecence. Baby calotis are cute.


/wp-content/uploads/2020/10/oct%202010%20026.JPG

This time for identification of the garden lizard.
… sir ..these r wonderful pics. How U captured these..did u wait all day long for this ??

Can I suggest that this plant may be Leonotis nepetifolia. Cau’z last year I photographed L.nepetifolia ..exactly at the same place. When today I posted it, i just assumed that it is castor. And after … inquiry I think it can be Christmas candlestick plant.
Posting  pics frm Oct 2010.

Realised my mistake. Sirji was talking about this mail, whereas i gave the names of othr attachments probably by .. Calotis is beautiful ….


Yes it seems to be Leonotis nepetifolia.
Happy ride to the lizard, now we know the plant

A gravid female laid eggs in one of my planting pits. They were unearthed accidently while planting a sapling. Was curious to know whether they were Garden Calotes [Calotes versicolor] or Forest Calotes [Calotes rouxii] eggs and hence incubated them at home. Photograph 2 [in the previous post] is also of their release.
