An egg laying mammal that eats insects with it's rocket propelled tongue!
Found all over Australia, this is the only one I've ever seen.

Now that is a beauty Gbgb
I'd just found one of mine.
They're common here, but mine isn't showing his prickles like yours. They are very cute animals.
I once found the skin of one , upside down on a log and some white feathers beside it. I gather a hawk had made a meal of it.

A rather large lizard. This was at the side of the road on a north West trip a couple of years ago.

To judge his full size, the while line at the side of the road is 100mm (4 inches)

My guess is he has just eaten.

Your mainland lizards are awesome in every way.
Great photo. He looks a bit stuffed, podged, just plain full.

Wow. That's awesome. Love the rippling of the water too, goes with the subject
I've never seen one of them.
They'd probably freeze down here.
Thanks for posting that.

I froze when I saw him as I was paddling in the water too. Luckily he was attempting to get away, not attack :) So, I stalked him from a distance and got a few shots.

They are amazing.
The wonderful world many (most) probably never see, or at least with such detail.
There are some stellar shots there.
