What is Wrong With These Images?

The mortar and stone looks like it is from this area...
as is the Ivy-leafed Toadflax....
the "yuccaonastick" isn't...
NOR is the "monitor"-type lizard!!
Where on earth did you spot it.... obviously an escape... unless it is in a zoo or private collection?
If it is in the Faune Touraine area, you MUST log it..
with photos... that'll stir things up a bit!!

It isn't a baby Komodo, is it....

Stretched horizontally? – a bit like the Concorde aircraft I saw yesterday.

Here you have both: the real lizard and its look-alike "incrusted" in the mortar of the ledge and the wall above it

In a way there is nothing wrong with these pictures. They are of an extremely lifelike plastic monitor lizard (what I would call a goanna and a French person would call un varan). The photos were taken in Montrésor. I suspect the plastic lizard is acting as a proxy for the salamander of legend, but is also there because I bet it fools a lot of people. I was accompanied by a vet at the time I saw this, and we both stood there for a while to see if it moved.

That is the most lifelike plastic creature I have ever seen...
no wonder you waited to se it move!!
I wonder how often it gets photographed?

I still think you should log it...
well, perhaps not...
you'd never have another record accepted!!
