Tuatara are amongst the most primitive living reptiles.  This image was captured at a reptile enclosure at the Victoria University of Wellington (New Zealand).  I believe this is part of the University’s Reptile Conservation Research programme. This little fella was sunning itself under a red heat lamp.

  2. I was amazed to see tuatara at the Zealandia (Karori Sanctuary) they were hard to spot at first. Seeing a tuatara in the wild (albeit in a sanctuary) was one of the highlights of my trip
