19th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Large Monitor Lizard

Reptiles Shed their skin regularly and then is replaced with a fresh layer of the skin. This huge Monitor Lizard at the Waters edge had its skin peeling off . The Lizard was lazing in the shade and looked menacing I decided to take shots of just its head among others
