Thread: Lizard ID?
Just for a bit of fun, here are some pics my dad took of a lizard a couple of years ago that we had quite a bit of trouble successfully identifying in any of the books we could lay hands on until I stumbled across a Catchment Management poster in my wanderings. So I thought I'd chuck them up here for people to have a go at. As dad is a grey nomad, at this stage I won't say where the pics were taken just to keep it interesting.

And you guys didn't cheat at all to answer that? Well done yes it is. Diporiphora Australis, Tommy Roundhead found at Lemon Tree Flat near Ashford Nth NSW. I have virtually zero knowledge of lizards and it took me two years of looking around to id it for myself. In the end a friend had a poster from the Northern Rivers/Gwyder CMA on the wall of her day care area and I recognised him straight away.
Seeing as that died rather quickly maybe someone else has an unusual looking lizard to post and keep things alive for a bit?
They are a such a gorgeous looking dragon but dad looked through all his books and I asked around etc and we struggled so I'm impressed by how quickly it was worked out.
Two years of research????
@Venomous1111 - The second one is a Sekukhune flat lizard, but no idea on the first one...
