Reptiles and amphibians photographed by Igor Siwanowicz as presented by: Telegraph Media Group

Biochemist and photographer Igor Siwanowicz has spent the last five years photographing reptiles and amphibians of all shapes, colours and sizes. Above, a Cranwell's horned frog tries to take a bite out of Igor's finger. A baby chameleon excitedly faces the camera lens with what looks more like a gleeful smile than a threatening grimace. "I followed the development of a bunch of Kinyongia chameleons from being just few weeks old to adulthood," Igor said. "I admire the attitude of the babies of the species - at just an inch in body length they do everything to intimidate you." "Animal's behaviour is not entirely unpredictable so it's always good to devote some time to observation of animal's behaviour prior the session. Some reptiles - especially chameleons - are prone to stress and cannot be handled for too long a time."
