Tuatara (Sphenodon punctuates) This ancient reptile is so different from anything alive today that it has its own order (meaning it's not a snake, crocodilian, turtle, or even a lizard!) It has a "third eye" on top of its head with a lens and a retina! Photographed at Willowbank Wildlife Reserve, Christchurch, New Zealand (captive)
