Chinese Water Dragon at the Artis Royal Zoo (also known as Natura Artis Magistra), Amsterdam (Holland)

Chinese Water Dragon is a species of agamid lizard native to China and Indochina.
It is also known as Asian Water Dragon, Thai Water Dragon, and Green Water Dragon.
As their name suggests, Water Dragons are generally found around permanent standing water.
They live on banks of rivers in rainforests and swamps. They are good climbers and can
drop from tree branches into the water if threatened or startled.
