I like the quote - 'Get out of the way puny humans'.
Very primeval.

I agree And so very fitting.
I am a strong believer in the simple fact is that what matters in this life is how we treat others. I think that's what living is all about. Not what I've done in my life but how I've treated others.

Not a Bearded Dragon but a close relative from just up the street.

I didn't know they were on this island. Eastern Water Dragon Physignathus lesueurii. This one is at least 3 feet. It was gorging itself in grass cut by the local council.

Very cool Glen! What magnificent photos, thanks for sharing them. It's also quite lovely to see you posting.

Sorry Cinda. I missed your question. I think there would be more reptiles in the garden. This is due to the many skinks I have running around. I haven't photographed them because they are small and fast! @gardengus

Goodness, it is the middle of winter and these are out of hibernation sitting in the sun. No wonder my daylilies don't know what is going on either: none of the dormants have acted like it, too.

I too think the dragons are cool creatures
They sell them here in pet stores but I don't think I could provide a good home , now if I had a conservatory on my house Big Grin I could fill it with creatures.

That Eastern Water Dragon appears to looking directly at the camera... and posing. Fascinating. Great shot.
Can't complain too loud about how the ball bounces when I'm the one who dropped it.

Water Dragons are great animals - and sooo big Carol. I notice I didn't say in that post what he was gorging on. These were mainly large grasshoppers that had been injured by the mechanical mower.
