Not sure what species the lizard is, but the biggie is a crocodile, taken at 'Wildworld' in Queensland, Australia.

Nice shot!
Very interesting situation. Pity that the focus is too soft and the light not very good, but its nice and I like it.
Thanks for sharing.

Great idea to shoot this funny situation. I like your title! I don't know about the shooting conditions, but the shot is taken from a position flattening the image. A lower POV would have given, IMO, more details on the little critter against the crocodile mass. Contrast is a bit harsh to bring out details and colors properly. Very original image.

Very funny picture and title. Well seen and sharp details. I agree with Ornis that it would have been better to shoot this pic from a different angle, a lower POV. But I assume you were leaning on a fence or something? Well done anyway!

An interesting concept here.The lizard looks like it could be a Basilisk or something similar.I presume the Wildworld dude set this up for the tourists.A good shot,that could possibly benefit from a litle cropping here and there.I've done a wee workshop...have a look.

A nice moment in time with a humourous twist, knocking the exposure down a half, maybe even a whole stop if it was print film, would have helped the contrast and colour.
