Thanks to Kristel Segeren for this image from Cahuita National Park on Costa Rica’s southern Caribbean coast: she came across a green basilisk lizard, also known as a Jesus Christ lizard because of its amazing ability to run atop the water.
For more stories and photos from Kristel, visit her blog, The Tiny Travelogue, or follow her (and her dog’s) adventures in the tropics and beyond on Facebook or Instagram.
Would you like to submit a photo to our #TTPicOfTheDay series – the view from your home or favorite Costa Rican spot, or any other image you care to share? Please send horizontal photos at least 1100 pixels wide to email@example.com. We’d love to see the sights with you.
