Sometimes it comes down to a battle of life and death, and you must proudly stand your ground while you fight. This little lizard is painted up like Braveheart, ready to embark on the battle of a century. His weapon of choice? A long, slender stick that he can whip around with ease and stop enemies in their tracks. Let’s just hope his enemies aren’t any bigger that say, a chipmunk, or this brave warrior might be in a little bit of hot water.
