SOME OLD SCANS OF FILM IMAGES- A modest beginning as a photographer

Here is an insight into my beginning as a wildlife photographer! Almost all of them were taken with my Vivitar 3000s SLR, with a little 50mm lens. The "Brook's Hill Stag" was a freak, taken with a little point- and - shoot fixed focus camera! Khairi's photo was taken by her owner, S R Choudhry, the first Field Director of Simlipal Tiger Reserve. Do post your comments!

Can anybody identify this lizard for me?

I found this snail on a fruitless trip to Jashipur, an entry to Simlipal. The snail was the only compensation for the all trouble!
