Tiny Monitor Lizard in Northern Serengeti

Posted December 15th, 2011 by   |  Photography, Travel  |  Permalink

We were driving back to our lodge from the Mara River in the Northern Serengeti when we crossed over this small stream. Just as we passed through, we all spotted a tiny lizard sunning itself on a log. We all yelled “baby crocodile!” and stopped our Landcruiser. Upon further inspection, this little guy turned out to be a young monitor lizard. It was a neat find and a totally different photo subject from the lions, wildebeest and zebra we’d been photographing earlier in the day.
