Herpetofauna: One Life's List

Crocodilurus amazonicus
Crocodile Tegu

Depto Loreto, Peru
January 17, 2013.

John Sullivan and I were kayaking on the Rio Orosa one sunny afternoon.  I paddled along one bank and John the other, and he called me over to have a look at this lizard tucked back in a bit of brush along the bank.  It took some stealthy maneuvering for us to work our yaks in close for photos, and we managed a few before the tegu plopped into the dark water.
