PREVIOUS LIZARD NEXT LIZARD Vietnam

Besides the two faint yellowish stripes along the back and tail, juvenile Garden Fence Lizards (fig.), also have two distinctive black spots on the back of the head, near the neck, as seen in this individual, that was spotted near My Son.

 

They look like nostrils and are reminiscent of the photosensitive pineal gland in some species of lizard, such as the Indochinese Water Dragon (fig.). See also List of Thai Animal Names.
