Just days before the completely unnecessary Andrew Garfield–and–Emma Stone vehicle The Amazing Spider-Man hits theaters, we get what might be the best and nerdiest teaser out there (yes, better than C.C. Sabathia’s butt spider): a lizard spotted in Kenya with the same coloring as Spidey.
This Mwanza Flat Headed Agama, which is native to Africa, was photographed by Cassio Lopes while on a trip to the Masai Mara National Park in Kenya. And with its bright red torso and blue legs, the lizard looks uncannily similar to Spidey himself. Lopes spotted the lizard sunning itself on a rock and managed to snap a photograph before it quickly darted away. “It was the first time we saw that kind of lizard despite our previous visits in Africa,” he said. “We were mesmerized by the colorful pattern and had never seen anything like it before.”
