This photo was in Finalist in the 2014 Veolia Environnement Wildlife Photographer of the Year. Category:“Reptile.”
This young Perentie (Varanus giganteus), the Australian version of the monitor lizard, will reach over 2.5 metres in length, making it the largest lizard in Australia. I was looking for a bird of prey to photograph in North West Cape, when I was lucky enough to come across this little fella, looking for a feed (snakes are a favourite snack). Despite their size, perenties are rarely seen. – photo by 2012©Tom Balks/TomBalks.com, all right reserved.
