      The lizard is a common flat lizard (Platysaurus intermedius).

      Thanks for that - I love the colors. There were about 5 lizards and about 20 little shrews running around but they're so fast that it's difficult to get them :)

      I know, they are hard to capture on a photo!.

      I sooo jealous…I have never seen an Elephant Shrew before… and actually have not seen many photos of them either…I think you did very well to capture this cutie!

      I saw this magnificent wildlife image in Born
      Free, Living Free
      , a group dedicated to the photography
      of wildlife in their natural habitat.

      Thanks - they're very cute. I wasn't sure whether they would use their little "trunks" to drink but they lift them out of the way and lap up the water with their tongues.
