unfortunately this guy had been attacked by a monitor lizard and i had to put him down after trying to help him recover without any success. These guys are under threat as their salivia is used in Chinese medicine!

Beautiful pics and great macro. Sorry that your little one couldn't pull through. I tried to get one of the feet a while back too. Your shot is much clearer than mine.
