Stunning Photos of Cold-Blooded Animals on Earth

Cold-blooded animals can be either terrestrial or aquatic. All reptiles, including snakes, lizards, turtles, tortoises, alligators, and crocodiles, some insects such as the busy dragonflies and bees, amphibians such as frogs, toads, and salamanders, as well as fish, including sharks, are all cold-blooded animals.

Personally, I am not a fan of cold-blooded animals since many of them are equal to danger in my mind. While not all the people share my thoughts and renowned reptile and amphibian photographer Matthijs Kuijpers actually was passionate about cold-blooded animals from childhood and he has now photographed more than 1,500 species. Through Kuijpers’ photos, viewers are able to explore the world of reptiles and amphibians from a new perspective. His portraits provides a detailed examination of and appreciation for each animal – striking and exotic.
