Gonocephalus liogaster — Blue-eyed Angle-headed Lizard
Some other names for this species:
Tropical Forest Dragon, Orange-ringed Anglehead Lizard, Crested Forest Lizard
It seems like every time you turn around in Malaysia you run into another fantastic arboreal lizard. Some have crazy scale patterns. Some come in neon-bright colors. Some have incredibly long tails and garish eye makeup. Some are just crazy overall. This species settled for a crazy crest and the world's bluest eyes.
Only the adult males have the blue eyes though. Little ones (as here) and females are still fine-looking lizards, but not quite so exciting.
Little ones are very similar to little Gonocephalus borneensis, but some details of the scales on the face distinguish them.
