Here is one of our Australian lizards, that have made our home, its new home.

This Blue Tongue lizard lives under our house, and occasionally comes out for some fruit we leave it.

You can see him enjoying this apple. He also loves bananas, and worms that Peter finds in the garden.

No wonder he lives here.

We are very carefull not to give him to much, and only feed him once or twice a week.

I not sure if it is the male or the female, (proberly the female) but we also have seen a smaller one, which would be one of its bables.

I have checked it out on the web, and found out what foods they eat, and how they can become quite used to living close to people.

I have had some fun taking images of this one, and any others we see. We have named this one "Stumpy", as most of his tail is missing.

Wow he is gorgeous! This is nice, but might be even better with a less defined background - more shallow dof. Might lower the green saturation a touch too. Great textures on him tho!

That eye is wicked! The only thing I don't like about this shot is that the red/orange backdrop is too harsh(perhaps overly processed?) and distracts me from your subject.

Nice lizard, It would have been better for me if the image showed more of the lizard, almost looks more like a snake.
