reptile’s are amazing. I particularily love the colours and details of their skin. Here are some photo’s below. Im not alone in finding the beauty in these, seeing as snake skin has been used in clothes/shoes for many centuries. Read here about snakes scales on wiki!

The last one actually is a photo of reptile skin as seen microscopically. You like it? Pretty cool stuff I say!

reptiles are amazing, look at their colours, they are just not meant for the boring human world where we are all various dull shades of colour! White/black/brown etc, oh how dull people’s skin colur is!

I mean the vividness of the reptiles colour hues and intensity of colour is just incredible! owch!!

I really encourage you to have a look at the recent reptile TV series on the BBC, life in cold blood. Click here for some online clips. Click here to see my previous related post on thermal camera photos.

Of course, you can convert any reptile photo into great artwork- even as a painting (?!) using artists such as those at Portrait Xpress.

Have a great day!

if you liked the THERMAL CAMERA IMAGES taken in the series life in cold blood then you will love these too!

Animals yet art, woooohooo! Don’t try and tell me thats not art!!

The thermal camera was used to reveal how marine iguanas use the sun to power their underwater lives. Cold ones that have just returned from a dive show up as black on the golden, sun-baked rocks.
