Scientific Name: Amphibolurus muricatus
Description: 5 small crests from top of head to hind limbs. Grey in colour with series of pale blotches
Habitat: Sclerophyll forests, coastal woodlands, usually in areas with some native vegetation
About: Jacky Lizards are active during the day and are often seen basking on logs or fallen branches. Their diet consists of a wide range of small arthropods.
Jacky lizards are very swift lizards and like many other dragons (Agamidae), the Jacky lizard will sometimes run in an almost upright position on its hind legs when pursued. In cool, wet weather, it will bury itself in the sand or shelter under a bush. It rarely enters the water, but does have the ability to swim. … source: Wikipedia
