Description:

This looks a bit intense for the lizard but I can assure everyone that it was being held very gently and it contorted itself into the shape seen here, it wasnt injured or hurt in any way, really. It was held briefly like this to get a shot of the orange belly, there was no other way to see it. They seem happy enough sitting on a human hand, due to the warmth.
