A very elegant and beautiful species of agamid lizard from our very own Western Ghats. This is “Anaimalai Spiny lizard or Anaimalais Salea (Salea anamallayana)”. This species is endemic to Western Ghats. This image was made way back in the month of August, 2011. We were living at Kodaikanal and we were lucky find this one by that time. All credits goes to my brother for finding such amazing creatures. I had zero knowledge about photography by that time and all I did was shooting with direct pop up flash. I just managed to bring this image to somewhat presentable, because, I don’t know will I ever be able to sight this species again. So here it is. 😊
