Chinese Water Dragon

Scientific Name: Physignathus Cocincinus

The Chinese or green water dragon, is a large arboreal lizard that inhabits the forests of eastern Thailand, Laos, Vietnam, Malaysia, Cambodia, and southern parts of China. Water dragons live in the immediate vicinity of fresh water. They are aptly named as they are strong swimmers and can remain submerged for 25 minutes or more. Water dragons use their swimming abilities and facultative bipedality to escape predators. Today, Physignathus cocincinus is one of the most popular lizards in the pet trade, which is where this specimen originated.
