Showdown in Don Khone

Category: Spontaneous Moments


Photo and caption by Adam Knopp

Captured while exploring the island of Don Khone via push bicycle. I stumbled across a puzzled puppy intrigued by a lizard. This little guy appears to be having its first encounter with such a reptile; a combination of agitated hissing and playful growling naturally followed. This amusing standoff ends with the cold blooded creature scurrying up a nearby tree, the puppy lost for barks. NOTE: No animal was harmed during the confrontation.

Location: Don Khone
