Description

This beautiful lizard is about 70mm in length and pretty slim. It is very glossy dark brown with a few 3-4 golden stripes from head to back. It was either hunting or passing by near a busy bus stop. It's highly precautious and immediately sneaked into crack between bricks when people getting too close (1.5 M distance). It would keep sticking its head out in few minutes. Too bad I was in hurry and couldn't wait til it came out again.
