I didn't choose the best background color for this keychain, so the lizard motif is barely visible. It's a little better with the light from behind, but without flash the picture became a bit blurry. Pattern from this book.

"Beautiful natural beaded animals"
By Torsten Becker, published in 2006
Available on Amazon
I believe this is Becker's first beading book, and I think that shows in some of the animals. I'm not saying that some patterns are poor, but the animals in his latest book (from 2008) are a bit more developed, and in general more exotic and unusual.
The patterns are collected in a removable booklet stapled in the middle of the book, and all the patterns are colored. Some of them are:
Spider & web
Dinosaurs (Stegosaurus & Tyrannosaurus)

Modified the colors a bit and changed the feet to make it more like a parrot, with two toes pointing forward and two pointing back. Pattern from this book.
