I finally got my painteds! I ended up with 4, from two different suppliers. Unfortunately the littlest one died, I suspect the behaviour of the larger ones had something to do with it. I now have 2 females and one male. These guys are nuts, interested in everything, love being sprayed, love...
In late October I saw a number of dragons in southern Eyre Peninsula whose identity isn't clear to me. The first two pictured were in Kellidie Bay Conservation Reserve (by Coffin Bay, west coast of peninsula). The latter two were in Lincoln National Park (east coast of peninsula, but not too far...
Hi all! I came across about half a dozen of these little guys while out on a walk around Port Adelaide today, and am curious about what they are. The closest I can manage with my terrible lizard ID skills is "some sort of Ctenophorus, maybe". :p Any takers?
Spring is finally breaking through (but it's still Antartic conditions for Darwinites) and the herps are coming out. Here's today's pics.

Just a few recent shots from 2013 before 2014 starts.
Early this year I went to the mallee with Nick (richoman on this site), matt(python_owner) and a few other guys who aren't on this site (steve and dan).

Hey guys so could you tell me which dragon would be better I'll tell you the details of my tank as soon as I find out some basic information
Do these guys like climbing or do they usually just stay on the ground and all that
Is it true they only grow about 10-15 cm
Well Matt beat me to the APS post on this... but last is always better.
After a riveting day of school Matt and I wasted no time (Maccas is not wasting time!) getting to Little Desert NP
On arriving there we set up our camp, and the tempting calls of banjo frogs nearby lured us to their pond...
Hey all, headed up to the Mallee over Cup weekend with a few mates to see what we could find. We started off at Little Desert, then moved up through Big Desert, and across to Hattah - Kulkyne National Park. Here is some of what we found. Enjoy the photos!
Banjo Frog (Lymnodynastes dumerilii)...
Just thought I'd show off some of the photos i've taken of local, SA herps over the past ten or so years. I am not a photographer - don't expect perfect photos. This is by far, not everything I have seen but these show some of the animals where I managed to have a camera (not a great one I might...
me and a chicken made our way to Mungo National Park last week.
Sitting in the car on the way got boring so we decided to open the windows and jump out in bendigo.
With perfect landing we stumbled across this disgusting creature.

Hi everyone, just finished a trip up to Mungo national park for 3 days.
It was about an 8 hour drive from melbourne, the first night we stopped in Hattah NP for 1 night, which is 1 hour south of Mildura.
Overall it was a good experience, i went with Richoman_3 (nick) on here.
I have pulled this from my blog. I couldn't be bothered re formatting all of the scientific names into italics again so I deleted them. Check out the original blog for those details: http://whawha88.wordpress.com/

So just across from the house in amongst all the shrubs/bushes, which are a few metres from the ocean. There are a few what appear to be Bynoe's Geckos.
Most are a goldy colour with black stripes across the top.
However, I saw one that was gold/orange with strips across the top and sort of aqua...
I've had an adult pair of painted dragons for about 6 months now.
Over the last week I have noticed the male getting thinner.
They are housed in a 900 by 600 by 600 melamine enclosure, the substrate is coarse sand, the ambient temperature is 29 degrees with a hot spot at around 34 degrees.
I'm hopefully getting a new reptile enclosure it's a bank of four 2-3ft wide enclosures by the looks of the picture.
I'm just wondering what I could get to put in there open to all suggestions but it has to be able to live in there at adult size.
thanks in advance :)

I was just over a friends house and they had this dragon, but didn't know what sort it is. I thought maybe Painted Dragon but could someone with more knowledge than I, give a definitive answer?
There was a little bit of interest coming out of Michaels http://www.aussiepythons.com/forum/general-reptile-discussion-42/colour-159804/ thread for a bit of a guide to field herping. I thought it would be a good idea to help some people get started. In this thread I’ll talk about some of the...
I have a pair of Ctenophorus pictus (painted dragons) and the female is gravid (I believe so anyway). Does anybody know how long this species is gravid for and what temperature I need to set my incubator at? Any other information about the egg laying process would also be greatly appreciated.

Has anyone tried feeding colour feed to your reptiles??
Can you safely enhance reptile colours with natural colour feeds such as asthaxanthin?
Its commonly used as a colour enhancer in fish foods and acts as a natural anti-oxident for other pet foods.
OK...well I might experiment...
Just wondering how far you guys have ever traveled to pick-up one of your scaly friends. Personally the furthest I have ever driven is to Yass, NSW, we were planing to drive to Tamworth from Sydney but the seller lost contact. Anyway, who ever has traveled the furthest for a reptile wins!
