    Nice, captivating shots Otavio. I keep looking at the hand, waiting for the fingers to move!

    Great shots Otavio, snakes eyes are fascinating but i'm surprised by the caimans hand I was expecting more of a 'claw' and less of a 'nail'. Almost appears manicured !!

    Creepy... and #5 came from another planet right?

    Great shots and what a wonderful opportunity you had. Judging from all the previous shots it was a holiday that many of us would envy.

    Btw - 6 Wow! Now you owe me 3 haha.

    Hi Lon. Thanks for viewing. Regarding the hand, I stayed about 15 minutes in front of this monster and I swear that he didnt move an inch! (that helped the shots, at least)

    Hi, Mat. Thanks for the encouraging words. Yes, I was also surprised by the nails. I only could see that when checking the pictures on the monitor. Regards...

    Bobo, that should be a secret! This is actually a Gorn's hand picture that Mr Spock sent me

    Seriously, yes, it was a very pleasant holiday trip!
