Nature photography, political rants, and Martyman laughs from the ten-time award-winning author Marty Essen

The Jesus Christ lizard

Marty’s photo of the day #3639: Don’t you just love the long rear claws of this Jesus Christ lizard? These lizards are named as such, because when they are young, they have the ability to run across small bodies of water—using only their hind legs. This large Jesus Christ lizard would sink. (Photographed in Costa Rica)
