Brown Basilisk

The Brown Basilisk is also known as the Jesus lizard from the ability to walk on water. They can't really walk on water but they literally are able to run on water for short distances. Basilisks can grow as large as 2 feet in length and have the “dinosaur” look due to their head shape with a crest that stems from their skull.

The Florida Wildlife Commission isn't sure what, if any, threat brown basilisks pose to native species so they are not, at present, considered invasive.
