Last week my good friend Chris Mattison visited the Museum to take some professional photographs of our animals for another book he is just completing. It’s always a real pleasure to see Chris, and with him just returning from Italy, and Adam just back from New Caledonia, we all had lots to catch up about.

Attention soon turned to the 4 species of Gecko from New Caledonia we keep in the collection, and Chris got some fabulous images of them all. It really is superb to witness Chris making great pictures of our animals with such speed and ease  –  which is also great for the animals too!


Chris also kindly gave us a copy of his latest book ‘Chameleons’, an amazing read that incorporates some fantastic images of these other wonderful lizards taken by him during his adventures around the world. I highly recommend this book for anyone interested in Herpetology and Natural History.

For anyone interested in Natural History Photography, we still have a few limited places left on the special weekend Wildlife Photography Course being run by ourselves in conjunction with Chris Mattison in November. Please click the link below for further details:
