This lizard's appearance may be weird, until you take a closer look

Japanese sculptor Chie Hitotsuyama isn’t your ordinary artist.

According to boredpanda, she specializes in creating incredibly realistic, almost lifelike sculptures of animals using newspaper.

By rolling, twisting and binding together wet newspaper, she creates sculptures of red-faced macaques, lizards and even rhinoceroses. 

In fact, some of her creations are so real they may be mistaken for live animals. 

Take a look at some of her works in the video below.
