    Nice pose. Liked the colours, I think it would be nicely camouflaged on the rocky surface. Is this a crop? Thanks for sharing.

    This guy doesnt look happy. The colors are nice, seems to be about 3 feet in length. The habitat seems wet, was it raining? Thanks for sharing.

    Thanx Murugan, you catch the right expression it was just about to strike on me. It was about 2 ft. & the land was wet due to moisture, as usual like in tropical rain forest.
