Mexican beaded lizard or the Gila monster (pronounced heela), the only true venomous lizard, the Komodo dragon being the only poisonous one. I tought black and white is more apropriate choice in order to illustrate the ghostly drama of Western desert landscape.They come from Sinaloa but this image was taken in a terrarium in LA Zoo.

Hello Radu!
What monsters did you catch????? Maybe it's interesting photo but... I'm afraid of it!

When will you post your photos from Romania?

Great shot Radu!
The sephia colours, skull in FG and quite strange POV works well to create really special mood.
It would be also interesting to see only one lizard in close-up with similar colours and the skull somewhere in BG or FG.
Anyway, I like the photo very much.
Well done!

Nice shot Radu, they are packing them in there. I hope they don't bite each other. Nice shot - I like the scenery.
