Two Tiny Turtles

Two Tiny Turtles

These two turtles are not the smallest I have ever seen. They were actually approximately 6 to 9 inches in length but relative to tortoises, they are tiny. They were climbing all over each other. I have made this image into black and white because I like seeing the textures and designs of the turtle shells. I also like the way the light plays in the picture. I took this image in Mexico. 

According to Wikipedia, “Turtles are reptiles of the order Testudines. They are characterized by a special bony or cartilaginous shell developed from their ribs that acts as a shield. “Turtle” may refer to the order as a whole or to fresh-water and sea-dwelling Testudines. Testudines includes both extant and extinct species.”

Checking You Out

Somehow, I get the feeling that these iguanas are checking me out. I don’t know what gives me that idea other than I have three heads and three eyes staring back at me. They seem to be on alert status. 

This is a photograph that I took in Hawaii. I like the way these reptiles are camouflaged very well with their background. 

According to Vetstreet, “Although they don’t actually use verbal language to communicate, iguanas talk to each other through head bobbing and through movement of the flap of skin under their necks — called a dewlap. Iguanas will extend their dewlaps to say hello to each other or as a sign of being territorial.”

Iguana On Boulder

This is an iguana on a boulder getting up to sun himself. He is perched every so precariously but he has the claws to be able to climb up and balance himself.

Green and Yellow Striped

Green And Yellow Striped

This is a green and yellow striped snake wound up and twisted onto itself. It was taken at the Phoenix Zoo in Arizona, USA. It is interesting how most of its body is coiled onto itself but that its tail dangles below.

Coming At You

Coming At You

It is so well camouflaged but in the side of the rock is a dangerous snake coming at you. It is basically hidden in its environment. I believe this one is venomous.

Yellow Snake

This is a yellow snake cocking its head off to the side. I believe it is a python but I am not entirely sure. It was taken at the Vancouver Zoo in Aldergrove, British Columbia. I like the angle of his head on the rocks.
