Well, this is a new type of animal to me...
Does he have whiskers or is that his tongue?

Beautiful shot! : D Love the simplicity of the white all around it and the contrast and the sharpness of detail; it's really effective.
though I saw someone comment about a mustache and now I'm seeing a Dalí mustache on the lizard and I can't stop

Serendipious color of the waer brings out the backside scales of the animal (monitor lizard?)

Hier finde ich die Bildbearbeitung sehr gelungen. Die Auslaufenden Wellen mit dem klaren weißen Hintergrund sind n ziemlicher Hammer! ;)

Die schwimmen wie Krokodile, oder? Mit seitlichen Schwanzschlägen bzw. Körperbewegungen?

Ich würde ja sogar fast behaupten, dass die noch'n Tacken besser schwimmen.

Nicht schlecht. Halten die sich auch gern am Wasser auf oder ist Schwimmen eher so notwendiges Übel für die?

Oh, Hias lieben Wasser. Weshalb ich den englischen Trivialnamen (Water Monitor) auch um einiges passender finde als den deutschen.

Sind schon coole Viecher. Wusste auch gar nicht, wie riesig die werden! (Hab jetzt endlich mal den Wikipedia-Artikel überflogen, damit ich dich nicht dauernd mit Fragen nerven muss 8D)

Interesting composition. The grayscale + pervading white background makes it look like a doodle!

Looks akin to a caiman but probably isn't.

It's a water monitor lizard, so it's closer to a Komodo dragon than a caiman.
