Below are just a few faunas we met at the nature park . . .
Nope, it's not a baby crocodile but a huge iguana!


Can you spot the green snake?
I nearly screamed after realising what it was because it looked very much like a vine to me at first glance.

    OMG. Well, we have our share of those particular types of God's creatures, but it doesn't make me like them one bit more.

    wow, I haven't been to this place, in fact I haven't even heard about it.

    This place is going on my to visit list. Thanks Mel.

    I thought that's a monitor lizard. We have lots of those at Redang and even at the back of some of my friends' houses. :D

    Wow. That is one mahoosive iguana!

    Aww, I love that you screamed at the snake. I actually get very jumpy and frightened around reptiles so I'd be exactly the same hehe.

    I think I'd be more likely to scream at the iguana! I used to be quite scared of snakes, until a friend of mine got two snakes as pets. Now I am much more chill around them, although obviously I still don't want to encounter them in the wild. But the iguana is massive and frightening!

    I can't believe that's an iguana! Yikes!!

    I would have guessed crocodile except the head isn't quite right. I would have screamed about the snake. Pet snakes have never bothered me but wild snakes scare me. A rat snake (completely harmless except to rats) got in my uncle's laundry room and I nearly climbed my husband when I saw it hanging on the wall. *shudder*

    That is a HUGE iguana! Even if it isn't a croc I'd still be freaked out.

    I like nature but at a safe distance that's for sure :)

    Either way, rather it's crocodile or huge iguana -- it scare me senseless *shudder*. Even more, snake is one of my fear *double shudder* But great pics, thanks for sharing! ;) :)
