The picture for this morning is of a Nile Monitor enjoying the evening sun. They are also called African Small-Grain Lizard or Water Leguaan.

Have a good week, stay home and stay safe!

This Water Monitor Lizard was enjoying the sun at Thanda’s largest waterhole. These intelligent reptiles are very shy and usually disappear quickly into water or high grass as soon as one approaches.

This specimen had a “trusting day” and stuck around for a lengthily photo session 🙂
