Black-cheeked Lizard (Calotes nigrilabris)
In Nuwara Eliya, most people looking for herps head to nearby Horton Plains National Park. But my guide Udaya Chanaka had another idea: we visited the home garden of a friend of his who lives in the area. In said garden we found numerous frogs, a snake, many Rhino-horned Lizards, and this very fine Black-cheeked Lizard.
