Here is an ancient species of reptile which has been around since the dinosaurs.

The Tuatara lives to over 100 years old but is vey slow growing.

Ian - Thanks for posting- an interesting reptile.

Roy - your frog is neat, too.

macshak - not too sure about snakes (once had a dog bitten by a rattler when we were out hiking), but the picture is excellent.

Thanks,
I swerved to miss him, then moved him off the middle of the road. Don't know why he was so mad. I saved his life.

Hope to get more pics like this now that I have a real camera and lens

Here's the biggest snapper I remember seeing in the wild. The shell was over 2 ft long.
