A few beasties from NZ

In Britain we have a lot of weather, in New Zealand they have a lot of Nature. The following pictures show only a few of their native fauna.

 A skink in the Native Animals part of Auckland Zoo. And below is the emblematic tuatara, the closest we still have to a dinosaur apparently.

 A Northland green gecko at the Botanic Gardens and the pod of dolphins who followed our boat on the way back from White Island.
 A pied shag surveying the surf at Karekare Beach.
