This delightful little creature was in a heated enclosure, inside a building, so I was unable to use a flash.

The Tuatara is apparently only found in NZ, and is becoming extinct. It is a reptile, but not a lizard. It is the last remaining member of the ancient group of reptiles "sphenadantia".

Thank you all for your previous kind comments and votes. Pam

Well taken shot, if you do not mind me saying, consider decreasing levels a bit and increasing highlights, it will bring out more detail in the subject. Spot on! Click!!!
