Baby Chinese water dragons line up for their family portraits

 

These lizards may be young but they already  know how to strike a pose.

The Chinese water dragons stayed incredibly  still for the family portrait, showing off their beautiful bright green skin.

The six-month-old babies even showed off  their playful sides by climbing up to sit on their parents’ heads.

Five of the six-month-olds cuddled up for the camera but it wasn't long before they wanted something a little higher

In one picture the father of the group  proudly reveals his vibrant red neck while three of his babies use him as a  bench.

The mother’s neck is a lighter pink and she  sits calmly with two of the youngsters atop her head.

The breed is known for liking heights and  climbing tree branches – so it’s no wonder they clambered over their  parents.

Jordan Cadiot, 17, who owns the reptiles,  took the pictures at his home in north-west France.

He said: ‘I originally saw a set of pictures of different reptiles and decided to stage my own photo shoot with a white  background.

‘I was delighted with the results as the  clear background allows you to really see the colour of the lizards.

‘The photos were taken at home, the  luminosity is very good when the sun is shining there.’

The father is 75cms long, while the mother is  slightly shorter at 65cms.

Pile on! The breed loves to climb wherever possible, even if it's only a few centimetres above the floor

Mr Cadiot added: ‘The younger ones were  playing when they climbed on the adult’s head – they prefer being up  high.

‘I like showing how nature is beautiful and  interesting.

‘It was great that I got to spend even more  time with my animals, I love to watch them play and act natural.’
