Spidey lizard

Here's a little lizard that looks like a bad movie I saw once.  Apparently, the spidey fans have been trying to snatch up these colorful Agamas for a bit now.  Beyond the coloring, I can't see how they're really that special. I'd take a dog over that thing, but still it is neat to look at.

Agamas like the Spider-Lizard, as it has become known make good pets, as they become tame and docile if handled regularly. However, they require specialist equipment in the UK to maintain their temperature. 
Native to Kenya, the rock agama (Agama mwanzae) is unable to throw webs, but can change colour – the brightly coloured males will change brown at night or if frightened. They can also run on their hind legs, and – like Spidey – can scale vertical walls.  via Geekologie
