      Hi Sue, those little goannas are quite usual around our town, but prevalent in the dry arid outback areas.
      Harmless but can give a nasty bite.

          We tend to get used to our own creatures Sue, here we have deadly snakes and spiders, and larger animals that we leave alone.
          Crocodiles are dangerous but you must know how to handle them, a good movie to watch about handling crocodiles is actually, Crocodile Dundee with Paul Hogan, you will see a few of the methods I taught Mick Dundee, Hogan in that film.
          Only joking hehe.

    Now I am worried about the digging in the dirt, whether or not it disrupts the lizard’s home and the bike, too. I liked the photographs but my busy mind makes new stories, maybe ones that don’t exist, Ian! Smiles, Robin

      The old Lizards are no worries Robin, nice eating though, but you have to be still and crawl up on them, then grab their tale with one hand, grab their mouth with the other, roll it over on your belly, and then yell for help, hehe.

      Glad you enjoyed the pictures of a few of our little Aussie lizards, they are fairly harmless but can give a nasty bite.
      Thank you for the visit and comment.

    Fantastic, Ian! I love WordPress. We can visit another planet (well almost) without leaving home.

      Good morning Monica, technology has really opened up our world, not only can we visit other planets but take pics, download and share.
      The world is shrinking every day, I think that’s why we see news from around the world more often now.
      Kind regards.

      Hallo Gislinde, froh, dass Sie meinen großen australischen Reptils mochte, sie sind harmlos, aber eine böse beißen geben sie große Haustiere machen.
      Liebe Grüße Lieber Freund.

    … saw many of their cousins in Cuba … u ever seen their babies, Ian ? … omg, they are less than a milimeter long and virtually colourless, but look just like the full grown ones … so enjoyed looking at them … among other things and things … smiles … Love, cat.

      Hi Cat, great that our little Aussie goanna’s don’t frighten you, didn’t know Cuba had them as well, they do grow to an enormous length here, if you come across one here in the bush, you never stand still, cos they think your a tree and run up you, I just normally wrestle them and then tie em up and release them elsewhere, hehe, only joking.
      Keep smilin girl.

    Interesting wildlife Ian! 🙂

    God Bless!

      We do have some great wildlife here Prenin, and the beauty is that you can still find them living around you.
      Suburbia hasn’t taken all their lands away from them yet, we tend to cohabit with them.

      Hi Sheila, glad you like one of our little creatures, these ones are harmless but can give you a nasty bite, if you come across one here in the bush, it pays not to stand still, otherwise they think your a tree and run up you, can be a bit scary.
      Hoping your well my friend.
      Kind regards.
