Oh No! Not Another One

By Joeblowfromoz
So excited to be able to show you this today, as I have been after one of these for so long, and everytime I see a shot of one of these in the gallery, I get more and more jealous, but today I have this to show you.

We went to the Armadale Reptile Park, where they take in injured wildlife, and this little fellow came to them as a baby and hasn't been able to be returned to the wild.

This is pretty much as shot, but just did a bit of work on the background.

Hope you enjoy and thanks again for all your support. Hope you are all having a great weekend..

Cheers

Jo
