Cold-Blooded Close-Up; An Intimate Look at the Realm of the Reptile

Themed Collections

16 October 2017

Posted by LisaP

Reptiles might not have the fluffy appeal of a kitten (or any fluff, for that matter), or the pulling power of the ‘big five’, but with a resilience 300 million years in the making, you’ve got to hand it to them – they know how to keep a party going. They might well have drawn the short straw on thermostatic capability but they inhabit almost every continent on Earth, their armoured arsenal packs a punch, and as for a round of hide-and-seek… well, they’re head, shoulders and an impressive show of camouflage above the rest. In fact, the class of Reptilia offers a magnificence rarely appreciated in its full prehistoric glory; one that beautifully translates through the lens if you’re fortunate enough to capture the incredible sight. Unfortunately, the elusive behaviour so vital to their survival also gives rise to an incredibly difficult subject matter to explore, which makes the following selection of images all the more astonishing. Take a look at our collection of the very best.
