  6. I am glad they are behind the glass! The first snake is a pretty green color. For some reason the middle two look dangerous.. And I like the cute lizard. Nice exhibit. Thank you for sharing your post with my critter party.. Have a happy weekend!

    1. Thank you Stewart! I will probably never see these critters in the wild so photos taken at the zoo will have to do.

  26. Litt skremmende og veldig fascinerende bilder Gunilla, det er vel ur-menneske i meg som skvetter litt.
    Det er så utrolig mange farger, mønstre og former av liv, en kan aldri bli lei av å studere det.
    God søndag.
