A lovely close up portrait of an Eastern Water Dragon.

The Eastern Water Dragon grows to around 80-90cm in length, much of which is tail. The colour consists of shades of grey or brown with a series of black bands on the back and tail and a black stripe on the side of the head behind the eye. The underside is creamy-white, although males may have a vivid red on some or most of the belly and chest. There are enlarged scales forming a crest down the middle of the head, back and tail. The legs are relatively long and powerful and the strong tail is flattened on the sides to assist with swimming.

  • Thank you for your lovely comments Ron! Yes I was immensely pleased with this shot – quite chuffed in fact. I just love the texture of the scales and yes the way he is eyeballing the camera. ;-)
