I think very special feautures of that Basilisk Lizard includes, it's lighting fast speed that the Basilisk lizard incounters everyday. it uses his webbed feet to monewver across water. The basilsk lizard is one the only living creatures that can walk on water. It has a helmate type head that is arrowdinamic for the basilisk lizard to gather speed easier . The good part about having the kind of speed this lizard has is so that you can catch preys in a instant and is not very hard, also the Basilisk Lizard never gets caught because it just simply runs away. In picture two you can see another amazing atribute of the Baslisk Lizard it's tail snaps up and down so that the basilsk lizard can feel the water and stay more balenced becuase at top speeds it's not very easy to control yourself , basicly it just helps the lizard stay balenced at the top that he gets up to everyday.
