    Blue Tongue Lizard, we like them as they eat all manner of nasties .... Sorry couldn't get to the camera in time to get a shot of one in the wild so to speak.

    That's quiet a cool lizard. :) Haven't seen one like that here, but got to see some huge iguanas every once in a while. :p

    Nope.. they are not food, well not for us non-indigenous folks.

    These are quite common in the south of Turkey.
    This was taken in Dalaman where there are flying fish, eagles, Kingfishers and of course the famous turtles.
    I still can't believe I swam in the lake where they live...bloody idiot :D

    A red squirrel! Quite rare these days, certainly in the UK.

    Where was the picture taken?

    Finland. That was taken literally in the backyard. I think we have only those and a handful of the flying kind. :)

    One of my favourite places :)
    I've been there many times on business and lived there for a short while in Helsinki.

    That picture was taken about 10 km away from the downtown. Many times people know only the capital so there's no reason to mention towns. :p
