The Changeable or Tree Lizard, can measure over 10 cm (3.9 in) in length snout-to-vent with a total length of up to 37 cm (14.5 in) including the tail.
The colouration is very variable, sometimes uniform brownish or greyish-olive or yellowish. The ground-colour is generally a light brownish olive, but the lizard’s head and throat can change to bright red, to black, and to a mixture of both.
They eat mainly insects such as crickets, grasshoppers, ants and small vertebrates. Non-venomous and harmless to humans, it tends to stay hidden in bushes and on trees and runs fast when disturbed!
