    Over the past couple of years I've stumbled across several unlikely knife photo models. Share your knives & critter photos.

    From the top:
    Texas Spiny Lizard on a Benchmade Freek
    Millipede on a Factor Equipment Iconic
    Horned Lizard (horny toad) on a BM 710
    Garden Snail on a Spydiechef
    BM 940 on a Kingsnake (My dog killed it. They don't sit for photos.)
    Harvester Ants on a Mini-Grip
    Garden Snails on a Microtech Socom Elite

    No animals were harmed in the making of these photos and all were released back into their natural habitat... except the snake. It died for its art.

    I know the first lizard looks dead, but it was just cold. I found him out basking, still extremely lethargic.

    Bubinga Opinel no.6 and an ornate tree lizard (Urosaurus ornatus). These are damn near impossible to see on the twisted bark of a mesquite tree unless they're moving or you can see the blue of a male's throat.

    Impressive photos! Very surprised you got the Spiny Lizard and Horned Lizard to stay still. This is one of my only critter shots.

    I like how you got a Spiny Lizard AND a Horny Toad. A lot of people get them confused.

    They're not too bad. Especially when they're a little cold. I've been trying to get a shot with a blue tailed skink for years now. Even when cold they bolt the second you let go.
