Not Norway

This feller lives in close proximity to our holiday cabin here in Queensland. Unfortunately we have to leave him behind when we return home in a few days. :cheers:

Presumably a water dragon ?

Nice creatures, they have them down our way as well (if I have the ID correct).

Beautiful creatures! I assume they're not dangerous?
Best wishes,

Unusually for Australia, they are not at all.dangerous.

We had these in our garden where I used to live, as well as blue tongue lizards, another similarly sized lizard. They are very useful to have around, as they eat snails and slugs.

Chris, you should know that they come from Australia, not the Amazon.

You loonie! EVERYTHING comes from Amazon, except, of course, Everything. Even a lizard-brain knows that!

Our 'friend' is about 1 metre head to tail, very inquisitive and because of its size, likely a senior male. Bit like me really, though I lost my tail... :grin:
