I thought the Jesus Christ lizard (aka. Common basilisk) had gotten its name because the first people who came across it said "Jesus Christ!!" when they saw it. Turns out it got its name because it can actually run on water.

I caught this one perched on a branch, just as it had run some meters across the river in front of us.

David Attenborough says, that for a human to pull off that stunt, you would have to run 100km/h.

The conclusion I take from that is, that Jesus was pretty fast.
