The plumed basilisk (Basiliscus plumifrons), also known as the green basiliskdouble crested basiliskJesus Christ lizard, or simply basilisk lizard or basilisk, is a lizard that can run on water. The basilisk is an omnivore, meaning it eats both plants and meat. They eat flowers, fruit, snakes, eggs, and fish. A male basilisk has crests on his back. Males are less than 1 pound and are usually blue. Females do not have any crests. They are smaller and lighter than males. Basilisks can run on water as mentioned before. Babies can run for 10 to 20 meters before sinking. All basilisks can run 5.2 mph on water, a little slower than how fast they are on land. To do this, they use fringes on their feet, the speed of their feet, the width of their feet, and their light weight.
