Nature photography, political rants, and Martyman laughs from the ten-time award-winning author of "Cool Creatures, Hot Planet," "Endangered Edens," and "Time Is Irreverent."

Animals A to Z. The Letter J

Marty’s photo of the day #2621: It’s “Animals A thru Z Month.” Each day in August, I will post an animal I’ve photographed—somewhere in the world—in alphabetical order.

J is for Jesus Christ Lizard. I photographed this Jesus Christ lizard in Costa Rica. The lizards get their name for their ability to walk on water. Actually, they run—very fast—as they cross small ponds and streams. I witnessed them in action several times, and they are hilarious—especially since they do their running on hind legs.
