    I have to admit, before I knew Smitti, I never really thought too much about lizards or monitors. But I can honestly say they are incredible little creatures and so fun to watch!!!

    I have kept a blue tongue before and snakes but even beardies have loads of personality and each is unique. And the monitors can be feisty buggers!!

    Yeah I've always looked at them that way. Those bluey eyes and the monitors charisma. They definitely seem awesome!

    I would say blueys are more dopey animals, they like cuddles and sitting on your lap compared to beardies which like to run around alot more. Monitors are just beardies on steroids ;)

    Finally got a half decent shot of a wild bobtail with it's tongue out! Shame that some of the toes were cut off though.

    Thanks! Although I'm not sure what I can tell you as I'm far from being a professional photographer. I can say though that lighting's very important, as well as focus and clarity of the subject.
