One of the mighty Komodo dragons on Komodo Island in Indonesia. They are huge. I was lucky enough to find an adult and a young one on a kill.
Then in Pench National Park, situated in Seoni and Chhindwara districts of Madhya Pradesh in India, i was on a trip to the &Beyond lodges and I was lucky (very lucky) to spot tigers.
Surely one of the most beautiful creatures on earth.
And I was incredibly lucky, also to spot, the dohar, India's rare wild dog
And now for some iguanas in the Galapagos...not as big as the Komodo dragons but still very impressive.
And a blue-footed booby...
...another Galapagos special.
But maybe, this is one of my most favourite creatures, the South African Midrand Giant bullfrog.
He is a fantastic parent, and will often guide his tadpoles to water in times of drought by digging a channel for them and shepherding them to safety.
