 Sailfin Dragon Lizards  are perhaps  the most spectacular lizards in the jungle. They are by far the most beautiful. Sailfin Dragon Lizards are stoutly built. They are sturdy! They are fast and busy! It is not unusual for them to reach  over 3 feet in length.  Male Sailfin Dragon Lizards  have amazing huge crests along the back and tail.  These crests are clothed in several shades of green, neon purple, and red-tinted bluish-purple. What amazing colors they have! Can you imagine trekking in the Philippine jungle? Think about watching as they scurry through the trees? Is there any other lizard on earth clothed in such finery?

Trekking the coastal marshes and riverside jungle forests is one of the amazing opportunities in The Philippines. These coastal marshes are a touch of paradise. No one knows what you will see. Each visit is unique!   These beautiful lizards are not harmful!  Nothing compares with watching them in their natural environment.  Sailfin Dragon Lizards are high-strung, dynamic, and enthusiastic.
