The Jesus Lizard is the only known lizard species that can run on water.
The Jesus Lizard, or Basilisk, can run on water for around 15 feet before they sink and have to swim. They can do this because of their light weight, flaps of skin over their toes, the speed of their run, and ability to shift weight along with a ‘piston-like’ slapping of their hind feet which helps to propel the the lizard upward and forward along the water surface.
