Not the world's greatest shot, granted, but even putting the camera on a railing moved too much in a 3.2 second exposure.

I note that none of the other Zealandia visitor photos showed a Tuatara by night, but there is one photo of one by day.

It's not a lizard, it's the only surviving member of the Sphenodontia order. and a lineage dating back to the Mesozoic.

Thanks to phigmov who suggested a visit to Zealandia, it's definitely worth it.

I have been reading about the Tuatara ever since I was a kid and had grown an interest in natural history.

Speaking of which -- you get all kinds of interesting animals down under on those big islands. I wish I were there sometime...

Well, I'm on vacation. Normally, I'm in the San Francisco area.
