*English- Hump-nosed lizard/Hump snout lizard/Lyre head lizard
*Scientific name- Lyriocephalus scutatus(Linnaeus, 1758)

This is the largest agamid lizard that endemic to Sri Lanka.This species widely distributed in wet and intermediate zones. Lives in canopy primary and secondary forests in Sri Lanka.When it feels something dangerous happening around,suddenly opens its bright red colour mouth and also males expand their dewlaps. They feed on earthworms,insects and ect. Sinharaja rainforest,Kanneliya rainforest are well known localties for this species and usually can be found around the water resources. A very CALMFUL,COLOURFUL and GORGEOUS agamid that can be found easily in Sri Lanka.But, the behaviors after feeling threatened are very SCARY!You can see well the sharp teeth and the red colour inside its mouth in this picture!Luckily,we observed this amazing creature for the very first time!
