Rare African Lizard Looks Amazingly Like the Amazing Spider-Man

If I didn’t know any better, I would say this is a clever photoshop trick to make this lizard look like Spider-Man.  This is not a trick and the lizard is real – but not easy to find. This particular lizard is Mwanza Flat-Headed Agama and is primarily found in Tanzania, Rwanda and Kenya.When seen, it’s often in the heat of the afternoon on the rocks. In this species, the male’s head, neck and shoulders are bright red or violet, while the body is a dark blue very similar to the web-slinging superhero. The females are brown and look like most other lizards.

Is it a coincidence that we are seeing these pictures the day before ‘The Amazing Spider-Man” movie hits theaters? I think not and this species has become a very popular pet due to it’s resemblance of the comic book hero Spider-Man.
