Lizzids

During the warmer months we have a very good supply of lizards of one sort or another. Many of them are rather small and very fast (thus providing a constant challenge to Tammy). Others, such as those pictured here are rather larger, but also very fast when they feel like it.


Shinglebacked skink (which I have heard referred to as the two-headed turd)







Blotched Blue-tongued Lizard, engaging in Darwinian behaviour of basking on a road.






Gippsland Water Dragon: when they decide to move they make a lot of noise as they splash through the water.







Eastern Bearded Dragon, probably improving the quantity of insects on our lawn (at least until I scared it, taking the photograph to the left). On the right, a typical rocky pose.
