Thanks. I'm not sure. Yes, now you mention it not real plump.
But it's dry as dry here and I wonder if that has any bearing?

I was thinking dehydration. Your region's drought and fires are in the U.S. news. Availability of prey would be affected, too.

yep :lol:
They are cute and entertaining and when they chase flies or other insects amazing to watch.
This one was very wary of me at first, ducking back under cover, then reappearing until it was used to my presence (less than a foot away) and I just snapped at will.
Then we both got bored and went our way  :p

I love lizards,

How cool to have them living in your lounge, sadly they are tough to find up here these days.

Thanks for sharing

Kev

Thanks for looking,

Cheers,

Thanks for starting this thread Spencer. Sad it hasn't had much uptake.

This is a water goanna, Varanus mertensi, yesterday afternoon at Howard Springs Nature Park east of Darwin. The second photo shows it sunning itself in the last rays of sunlight and puffing its throat out to make it look more intimidating to the giant inching towards it on his belly with just a 135mm lens.

What beautifully composed images!

I love the clean, distraction-free backgrounds. . Getting down low like you did is really essential for quality images such as these.

You did some excellent work here with this fine subject!

"Your" and "you're" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one.
"They're", "their", and "there" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one.
"Fare" and "fair" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one. The proper expression is "moot point", NOT "mute point".

Thank you so much Tom. High praise coming from you. I'm finally realising how important getting down to the subject's level is. In fact I found a couple more of these goannas today in Litchfield National Park. I've just got home but I'll post some pics when I've processed them.

It is awesome that you've found even more! . Can't wait to see the pics.

I am now becoming curious about this species. . Its size and shape remind me of Water Monitors that I've seen in pictures. . Are Water Goannas closely related to Water Monitors?

Ah yes, same thing. Goanna is an Australian name for monitor lizards. This is why I usually include Latin names for species on this international forum. I understand the British when they came here thought these monitors looked like iguanas and that the name 'goanna' is a corruption of 'iguana'. Sadly hard to find now since the devastating impact of the arrival of the toxic cane toad, Bufo marinus.

They are really cool I agree!! All of us in Florida have lizards living in our houses at one time or another, or maybe all the time. I find dried up baby lizards under my couches from time to time. I guess there isn't enough to eat indoors. I set them out in the yard when I am able to catch them-they are fast!! There are lizards all over the place around here, several kinds, including a few non-native species.

Thanks Ed, they do. I've often wondered why they're called monitors (as they're more commonly goannas in Aus). Apparently it's because of their habit of standing straight up on their hind legs 'monitoring' the scene.
