We (Bhavita, Kannan and I…the smallest group I’ve gone on, in a long time!) were returning from Nandi Hills when the sight of this
brought us to a screeching halt.
What a beauty! Luckily, it had not been flattened by traffic on the other side of the road, and was already on our side. It goose-stepped, or should I say, chameleon-stepped, into the grass verge. Watch this video, the progress of the reptile is funny, to say the least!
Here it is, closer to the grass verge:
It then climbed on to a rock:
And disappeared into the shelter of the leaves and greenery:
From there, we could see its moving cone of an eye peeping out at us, as if to ask, "Have you people still not gone?"
