This amazing image isn’t a black hole sucking up the contents of the Universe, or an aerial shot of some dark mysterious lake. In fact, it’s the eye of a Basiliscus lizard, photographed by Suren Manvelyan.
Part of a series of amazing macro images, this close-up of the live-and-kicking lizards joins pictures of animals you’ve probably never even heard of: Tockus birds, Fennec, Kramer’s parrots, Muflons… it’s a long ol’ list. You should check out the entire series over in Manvelyan’s gallery — they’re extremely striking. [Suren Manvelyan via Peta Pixel]
