Basilisk Jesus Lizard Frustrates Evolutionists

In deep south Mexico, and further south into Central and South America (with some appearances in Florida, USA), you might come across the basilisk lizard. It's been a bad boy as far as Darwinists are concerned, since not only is there no fossil evidence for its evolution, but the oldest fossil shows that it's virtually unchanged over alleged millions of years.

The basilisk ("Jesus lizard") frustrates evolutionists in several ways.

But wait, there's more! The basilisk befuddles evolutionists with its ability to sprint across water. It's been nicknamed the "Jesus lizard" for this reason. Guess they didn't read the part where Peter did the same thing, but I reckon that people wouldn't cotton to the less dramatic name of "Peter lizard". Not only is there no string of evidence back to the supposed common ancestor of lizards, but no way to imagine how it evolved its strange water-walking ability. Let's face it, the biblical creation makes far more sense. Let the article explain more:
Jesus lizards literally run across the surface of ponds in Central and South America. According to evolutionary thinking, all reptiles—snakes, turtles, gavials, dinosaurs, pterosaurs, chameleons, skinks, and Jesus lizards—descended from an unknown original reptilian form. What evidence might demonstrate this? Strings of fossils should clearly connect each basic reptile kind back to that supposed key ancestor. It should have interchangeable or adjustable body features that natural forces could have manipulated without disrupting the evolving creature's essential functions. A newly discovered fossil of a Jesus lizard in Wyoming shows just the opposite evidence.

. . .

They discovered that moving across water requires unique features. This lizard doesn't really crawl across water—it motors.
