The lizard -- a Mwanza Flat Headed Agama -- not only sports the Web Slinger's costume coloring , but also seems to be striking something like a classic Spidey pose too..





The little fella was captured on camera by photographer Cassio Lopes on a trip to the Masai Mara National Park in Kenya with his wife Alessandra..

"We were on a photography workshop and on one afternoon we were parked for a couple of hours near Rongai river. It was dry at that time of the year and we'd been told a female leopard had been seen in the morning roaming around so we decided to spend some time there looking for it. After so much time without spotting the leopard we started looking for other things and my wife spotted this lizard basking in the sun on the top of a rock near the river. It was the first time we saw that kind of lizard despite our previous visits in Africa. We were mesmerised by the colourful pattern and had never seen anything like it before. I think this lizard was even more shy than Spiderman himself. It must have brought us luck though because afterwards we managed to see the leopard we were looking for."

I guess this lizard didn't get the memo that he should be wearing a lab coat.

So this would happen if the lizard would be bitten by radioactive spider.
