Dragon lizard snapped playing a leaf guitar

Dragon lizard snapped playing a leaf guitar

It looks like the next big rock star could be this dragon lizard.

Photographer Aditya Permana, who is based in Yogyakarta, Indonesia, was recently exploring the local forest when he came across this dragon lizard.

After observing him for an hour, Permana was stunned to witness the lizard holding a leaf like a guitar slung across his body.

“I did not directly photograph the lizard at first, until the lizards feel calm and comfortable around me. I noticed it looked like it was playing a guitar – and it didn’t move at all,” said Permana.

Unfortunately, the lizard did not begin to start rocking out on his makeshift guitar but it sure does look like it!
