Pet stores in the UK have been swamped with orders for a reptile that bears a striking resemblance to Spiderman.

The rush of orders was sparked after pictures of the Mwanza flat-headed agama lizard — better known to its Twitter fans as Spiderman Lizard — appeared on the internet.

Wildlife photographer Roy Daines snapped the creature while lounging by a pool on holidays in Kenya.

However Australian fans of the eye-catching reptile will have to be content with the photos, as the country’s quarantine laws prevent the importation the species.
