Juvenile of Keeled Indian Mabuya. Again got lucky.. After my first skink shot, I went to Karnala Bird Sanctuary, Raigad, Maharashtra, India.<br />
And to my surprise within few mins I saw two juveniles playing with each other.. When I got little close, one Disappeared in the thick leaf-litter, and this one freezed its movement. Allowed me too approach too close.. I was waiting that it&#039;ll flickr its tongue and I could get a nice shot.. but it wasn&#039;t moving at all. <br />
So left it alone after couple of shots.. and few scratches on elbows &amp; knees.. ;-) Bird,Eutropis carinata,Fauna,IncredibleIndia,India,Indian,Karnala,Keeled,Keeled Indian Mabuya,Life,Mabuya,Maharashtra,Nature,Raigad,Reptile,Sanctuary,Serpent,Skink,Wild,WildLife Click/tap to enlarge
