African Reptiles

Gecko on bark, Zambia
Sometimes it is the smallest things that bring the most pleasure.  Our journeys through Zambia’s wildlife parks had been all that we could have hoped for and now we were spending a leisurely day and night at a little wildlife sanctuary on the outskirts of Lusaka before flying home.  Part of the park was designated for orphaned elephant rehabilitation while the rest was lawned areas surrounded by some scrub bisected by a small creek. Despite the elephants, antelope and giraffes that wandered freely through this enclosed park it was the squirrels, lizards and butterflies that caught my attention. This little fellow was perched motionless on the bark of a tree that shadowed our roundel. He seemed to be there most of the time scuttling away if I ventured too close.
