A plumed basilisk is a kind of lizard that has a maximum size of 3 feet long, but an average size of 2 feet. The males have one crest on their head, one on their back, and one on their tail, but females only have one crest, which is located on their head.
Plumed basilisks eat insets, small mammals, smaller species of lizards, fruits, and flowers.
In warm, damp sand or soil, the females lay 5-15 eggs at a time. After 8-10 weeks, the babies hatch.
