I found this Oriental Garden Lizard beneath a coconut tree while I was traveling to Kaptai, Rangamati. It has very sharp sense, so I had to keep patience, crawled and took cover while taking some of its shots. Here is a single shot to demonstrate. They are very easy to identify; however their physical complex may vary by location. Though they are commonly known as “Blood Sucker,” a name given by local people, but they don’t suck blood at all. They are widely available in Bangladesh; as well as many parts of the world.
