MOTHER Nature appears to have a created replica of comic book superhero Spider-Man.
Photographer Cassio Lopes snapped the super creature clinging to a rock in the Maasai Mara National Park, Kenya, in a pose almost identical to spidey’s famous crouch. The lizards are native to Africa and live in groups with one dominant male - usually the most colourful.
And just like the superhero’s secret alter-ego Peter Parker, this creature is extremely shy, vanishing as soon as the camera had snapped.
Cassio, 38, was looking out for leopards when he spotted the creature basking in the sun and grabbed his chance for a photo.
He said: “I think this lizard was even more shy than Spider-Man himself. –TS
