Chilled spiky lizard helps Peruvian park nab a record
In Peru's Manú National Park, hundreds of types of snakes, frogs, caimans and turtles crawl along the forest floor.
One of these is the lizard pictured, a reptile only recently recognised by scientists. This scaly member of the Potamites genus is about 6 or 7 centimetres long. Unlike many other lizards, it lives thousands of metres above sea level, where clouds hug the forest canopy, and braves the cold mountain streams.
