I had to lift this guy (Eastern Water Dragon) out of our back yard pool before my Wife could get in for her daily swim...

Cheers

Wow you are a brave soul! Did he try to bite or scratch you?

Those nails (I can't think of the proper word here) look razor sharp!!!

Hi Charles

This guy was only approx. 70-75 cms long (27-30 ins) so not fully grown and you would not (should not!) attempt to handle them unless you are experienced (=grab them by the tail) as they do have a bit of a nasty bite with a bacteria laden mouth. He uses the long, sharp claws to very effectively climb trees, where he can locate the eggs of nesting birds, or even catch small Possums.

I caught him in our pool net, at the end of a long handle and then took him to our lower garden where I release him, so he wouldn't jump back in the pool.:-)

I think he lives under our house as we often see him crawling out between the battens before he goes walkabout and he leaves his tail dragging imprint in the loose dirt.:-)

Cheers

Dennis

wow - thats up close and getting closer.
You did very well. I gather it must have been oblivious to your presence
A very nice capture

Indeed Richard, it was on a mission chasing some kind of snack and totally oblivious of myself, two cyclists and a couple of walkers!


A coupla bodies and a few lenses

I absolutely love the point-of-view perspective of this one Graham, just a gorgeous photo of this guy going about its daily business.:-)

How big will he get when he is fully grown? How will you deal with him then when he gets into your pool???? He sounds big enough now!
