I heard a noise amongst the dead leaves at a free campsite at the Chimneys in Queensland. As I hate snakes, I took off and watched from a distance. I was shocked at the size of the lizard that appeared before me. At first, I was relieved to see it was not a snake, although this was six foot long and as I had never seen one before it was scary. This is my second entry for the 7 days of nature challenge.
These are beautiful, especially as they eat snakes. Their feet are huge too. As my husband and I watched we saw more movement and another one appeared through the bushes. This one was slightly smaller and it was missing a piece of his tale. They both wandered around the area in between the campers without bothering anyone.
