The brown basilisk (Basiliscus vittatus), also commonly referred to as the striped basilisk or in some areas as the Jesus lizard, is a species of basilisk lizard in the family Corytophanidae. The species is native to Mexico, Central America and adjacent northwestern Colombia, and has been introduced into the U.S. state of Florida as a feral species. The brown basilisk has large hind feet with flaps of skin between each toe. The fact that they move quickly across the water, aided by their web-like feet, gives them the appearance of “walking on water”. Juvenile Brown Basilisk Stock Footage was filmed by Heiko Kiera aka Ojatro in Florida in 2018.
