Water walking Edit

These lizards' webbed feet, along with the ability to move quickly across water, makes them look like they can "walk on" water.

When threatened, they run away on the water, and can run on it for about 10-20meters, then sink. The juveniles can run on water for a longer period of time without sinking.
