Lizards in Madagascar I Encountered

There are over 300 species of lizards in Madagascar. Chameleons and geckos are the most well-known lizards so I put them in separate posts.

Chameleons – iconic lizards of Madagascar
Leaf-tailed geckos – masters of camouflage
Day geckos – unusually diurnal geckos

Besides, there are some other interesting lizards I found which are lesser-known.

Three-eyed lizard (Chalarodon madagascariensis)

One of the 8 species of Madagascan iguanas. It is also called Malagasy collared lizard. I found them in Ifaty (south) and Morondava (west).
