Wild Tuatara by MolefaceNZ Wild Tuatara by MolefaceNZ
Last weekend we stayed the night on Somes Island in a DOC house and while we were out on a walk we found this wild Tuatara. There are little over 50 Tuataras on the island so we were lucky to get so close. Tuatara are found only in New Zealand and have been around for about 200 million years. It has been classified as an endangered species since 1895.

Hi,

What a great pic!

I'm making some jigsaws for kids... Would you mind if I used this picture for either the front or the back of my Tuatara box?

Look forward to hearing from you!

Bart

Wow, I applaud your luck for finding one of these guys in the wild. I'm really quite jealous, I've wanted to see one of these guys since I was a kid. Nice photo as well. :)
