Often called the "Jesus lizard" for its ability to run atop the water on huge feet equipped with flaps of skin along the edges, the basilisk is common in sea-level waterways of Central and northern South American rainforests. Our Costa Rican tour boat had crossed the border into Nicaragua when this photo was taken.
