As ceases the scorching heat slowly and gracefully after the last week of April, the scrublands, grasslands and the hilltops of
Pune become dating hot-spots for the Fan- Throated Lizards. This lasts for the next two and a half months at most.
This here is a Deccan Fan-Throated Lizard ( Sarada deccanensis ).
The Fan-Throated Lizards live in underground crevices or inside cracked rocks. The bask around on tall rocks, twigs.
Sometimes alone and sometimes in pairs.
I captured this image a year ago, while on a nature trail in Pune’s well known hill, Vetal Tekdi.
