EDITORS COMMENTS
This photograph, taken by Frederick William Bond in 1929, transports us to the London Zoo of yesteryear. The image features a mesmerizing creature known as a Tuatara, peacefully resting upon a rugged rock. In this historical snapshot, we witness the unique beauty of this reptilian species up close. Its full length is showcased from a side view, allowing us to appreciate its intricate details. The tuatara's scaly skin glistens under the subtle light while its distinctive markings add an air of mystery. The tuatara belongs to the ancient order Rhynchocephalia and is often referred to as a living fossil due to its remarkable longevity on Earth. This photograph serves as both an artistic masterpiece and an important document for scientific study. As we gaze at this monochromatic marvel captured by Bond's lens, we are reminded of the rich history that resides within our world-renowned zoological institutions like the Zoological Society of London. It is through these establishments that we can explore and learn about extraordinary creatures such as this tuatara. Bridgeman Images has preserved this piece of natural history for all to admire without any commercial use intentions. Let us cherish this glimpse into the past and celebrate the wonders that lie within our animal kingdom.
