Lizards Home > Library > In The Wild
 

Native to the forests of the southern areas of Western Ghats is the Orange-lipped Forest Lizard (Calotes aurantolabium). Their only currently known range is on the Kalakkad Mundanthurai Tiger Reserve.

The Orange-lipped Forest Lizard has a green coloured body with orange coloured upper lips. Their body, throat and head are all covered with acutely keeled scales.

They are distinguished from other members of their family by several features including their scales, toes and the lack of na antehumeral pit. They were originally included in the Calotes family with Calotes andamanensis.
