It is a type of garden lizard, which is found in large numbers in South India. Its scientific name is Psammophilus Dorsalis. Habitat loss and urbanization have affected its presence.
The colour of this large animal is orange and black. They depend entirely on external sources such as hot rocks or sunny places to keep their bodies warm.
They are important from the point of view of various ecological aspects. Their presence indicates the warming of the cities. An increase in their numbers would indicate a change in the food web as they use insects as food.
