Default Lizard with an attitiude

Hi Guys: Got a few interesting shots in lately. Haven't had time to post much between work and Sharon's "Honey do" lists. But I'll try to start posting a few more.

Since Edge posted some great snake shots, thought that I would share a few lizard shots. (See Ted, I can find more than just gators. LOL!!)

You know that I'm always looking for natural humor in animal shots. Found a pugnacious looking lizard hitching a ride on a bigger one.

Photos to follow.

Oh, and I may as well throw in a couple for Edge. He probably knows what kind this is; I don't

They are indeed pretty funny. The big one seems oblivious. "Huh? There's a lizard on my back? Really? Huh?"

Yeah, I don't think that little guy would survive long if it was doing that atop a gator...

The top lizard is a Sailfin Lizard/Dragon, the one below it is a Caiman lizard (they feed exclusively on snails) and the big python is a Reticulated Python...nice shots Steve, where you at a reptile park?

Hi Edge: no reptile park, just a stroll thru Busch Gardens in Tampa on Saturday. I have an annual pass there, and at Tampa's Lowry Park Zoo. I have hundreds of animal shots, but don't do reptiles all that often. But I liked the humor of this situation.

Steven, I think you should get closer to that tiger. I just know she wants you to scratch her ears.




Just kidding.

I think it was his back yard..!

Fun shots Steve..

The most wild life I've seen this morning (other than the boids) is a Coon with a couple of cute 'kits' They really are fun to watch. No photo opp though.

....the only animal I've seen this weekend has been our cat, we call her 'toy tiger' but I don't reckon that counts for much.

I like the lizard and snake pics, thanks Steven.
