Lizards From Around the World

Over the years reptilian creatures have been slithering their way into my art work making me think that maybe it’s time to gather up a mass of lizards and see what I have!

On Koh Roc in Thailand, these giant monitor lizards came crawling out of the surrounding forest as soon as lunch was served; not sure if they were after the food or the Singha! We kept our distance, partly because the guides said that they have a particularly toxic bite, and partly because they were large enough to swallow a small child. This big guy was around five feet from tip to tail, and there were three more just like him who all came out to join us for lunch. In Malaysia I saw one of these big guys slither into the ocean where I had just been swimming, making me realize maybe why that inviting swimming spot was so deserted!wild monitor lizard on Koh RocClosely related to the monitor lizard, but way more dangerous, a Komodo Dragon gives me the evil eye at the Singapore Zoo.A Komodo Dragon giving me the evil eye at the Singapore ZooIguanas are probably my favourite lizard – this orange guy was relaxing on a rock in Mexico, too lazy to scuttle off. Orange iguana relaxing on a rock in MexicoA curious lizard at the Singapore Zoo; he has great colour and markings but his pouchy eyes make him look like some unhappy dragon in a children’s book.A lizard at the Singapore ZooA tiny green lizard on a rock in the American Southwest.A tiny green lizard on a rock in the American SouthwestLizard at Phu Prabat in northeast Thailand (Issan).Lizard at Phu Prabat in northeast Thailand (Issan)Tiny lizards crawl all over the sign at the Siem Reap Guest House ‘Shadow of Angkor’ in Cambodia.Tiny lizards crawl all over the sign at the Siem Reap Guest House 'Shadow of Angkor' in CambodiaMore of Jennifer Nichole Wells One Word Photo Challenge: Lizard.
