    Default 'Spider-Man' of the lizards


    This Mwanza Flat Headed Agama was snapped in Kenya

    Spider-Man, Spider-Man, does whatever a... er, lizard can?
    No, this little chap hasn't been painted - nature has given him this bright red and blue suit just like the Marvel comic superhero's.
    Now pet lovers are clambering to buy the Mwanza Flat-Headed Agama because of its uncanny likeness to the webslinging wonder.
    Karen Baker, from exotic-pets.co.uk, said orders for the African lizards, which can live for more than 15 years, were spiralling up.

    It looks so much like Spider-Man

    She said: 'They usually live in groups with one dominant male who is usually the most colourful. People are drawn to them because of their unusual colourings and we have sold out. The demand just keeps going up and up.'
    Rich Nunn, 35, from Nostalgia and Comics in Birmingham, said the resemblance was uncanny. He said: 'It looks so much like Spider-Man.'
    Agamas are said to be good pets if handled regularly, but they need special equipment to maintain their temperature. They can grow up to 30cm (1ft) long on a diet of locusts, crickets, mealworms and waxworms.
    The RSPCA warned: 'These animals often have more complex and specialist needs than traditional pets.'
    The rock agama is native to Kenya in Africa and is able to change colour when threatened.
    And just like Spider-Man himself, they can climb up vertical walls.
