Someone get this lizard some SPF!

If you thought you were the only one working on your post-winter glow, meet the Whipsnade Zoo's plumed basilisk.

The green critter was photographed taking advantage of the season at its Bedfordshire, England, home after enduring the U.K.'s second coldest March on record.

We're thinking this little buddy is more than ready for some fun in the sun. After all, the plumed basilisk is often nicknamed the Jesus Christ lizard for its ability to walk (very briefly) on water.
