R IS FOR REPTILES: THE A-Z CHALLENGE.


.
R IS FOR REPTILES!

THE A-Z CHALLENGE.




Reptiles! I love them. Lithe, sinewy, cool bodied, scaly yet sensually smooth, they absolutely fascinate me. I adore picking up a lizard, or even better a snake. The way their strong, muscular body glides and twines around my arms or neck, around my body is just so exhilarating. I love it! I'm a snakeman!                                          In Varanasi, I was picking up this cobra when my wife snapped this pic. Yeah, I know the snakecharmers snakes have all had their fangs removed, so I was perfectly safe.... After I had played around with this reptile, I asked the guy how long he'd been doing his act..




"Not very long Sir. This is new snake. Soon to get him fixed"



Oh dear!






Do you reckon he was telling the truth or scaring me?!

Here is another reptile -




Tuatara, New Zealand's ancient reptile.
