Gonocephalus liogaster showing off its baby blues I saw quite a few of these lizards on the Santubong peninsula, all of them sleeping at night. The adults were vertically clutching saplings as in this photo. The youngsters were more often horizontally draped across twigs.

Gonocephalus liogaster showing off its baby blues

I saw quite a few of these lizards on the Santubong peninsula, all of them sleeping at night. The adults were vertically clutching saplings as in this photo. The youngsters were more often horizontally draped across twigs.

  1. Why do they call it blue-eyed?
    Seriously, this one is fantastic. Crazy detail on the body, and for a night shot, the light is delightfully soft and elegant.
