    Suddenly my neighbors are looking a little better than they did just moments ago.

      The goanna is pretty good but it does upset the neighbour’s dog by not respecting her space…

      They are quite striking. We were happy to see it again.

    Wow, that looks enormous.
    How amazing to have something like that wandering around you garden, do they bite?

    The only lizard I saw on my visit to Oz was quite small in comparison, it was quite stumpy and oval in shape. I can’t remember what it was called, Stumpy rings a bell, but I’m guessing that was its nickname.
    Still enjoying your break then 🙂

      Thnx. Still another week of holidays. Goanna’s will bite if threatened but more so they will climb the nearest thing… including people, and have very sharp claws.
      You may have seen a Blue Tongue or Stumpy Tail lizard.

    I can remember growing believing that old wives tale that if a goanna bit you the bit would come back every year. I don’t know that I have ever seen one. Great subject.

      It’s entirely possible. I haven’t heard that re goanna bites but have seen it with spider bites. Poisons have energetic properties and memories.
