The Reptile Report - Take a look at this amazing lizard!

From Ronald Zimmerman Photography: “Kinabalu Crested Dragon (Hypsicalotes kinabaluensis) in Kinabalu National Park (Sabah, Borneo).

From the first moment I realized that it was special. First just because of the beauty of the animal. I was really impressed (maybe too impressed to make a good photo). Later, after posting it on FieldHerpForum, I realized how special this encounter was. Also after a search with Google I did not find another photo of an adult male Kinabalu Crested Dragon (Hypsicalotes kinabaluensis) like this. I was very lucky that this lizard usually moves very slow. A special moment to remember!”
