Yeah Steve will be going back soon hopefully and do plan to go around the south and Nourlangie etc
Thanks mate!!! Yeah saw quite a few monitors. Panoptes, Mertensi, Mitchellii and Scalaris but didn't get many chances to photograph them unfortunatley. And yes HEAPS of crocs, mostly Saltys.
Wow fantastic photos
That Darwin python looks great
Thanks, Yeah the Darwin was really nicely coloured!
Looks like a freshy to me Matt!
Yeah, I think it's a vestigiata. I can't give a definitive reason as to why, it's face just doesn't seem paupuensis to me.
I never said it wasnt a freshy!
Great stuff Matt! I really love the shot of that Greater Black Whip Snake, the photo really brings out the amazing colours on it.
BTW we just don't get enough crocs in the Yarra do we?
Awesome photos mate, I'm heading up there on June 1st for 2 weeks, can't wait to see what I can find
Haha Cheers Tim, Yeah a few crocs in the Yarra would be nice!
How were you differentiating between Mitchelli and Mertensi? On the basis of size alone, or markings as well? Any photos of Mitchelli at all?
Mertens are bigger and even when juvenile, have a much bulkier look to them. the mitchelli was a lot smaller, and although juvenile, you could tell by its long and slender shape. and unfortunately it got away before we could get close enough for photos.
Hi nice photo's
Also just got back from NT, here I found this little guy in Kakadu (Ubirr).
Any ideas what it is?
Looks like a two-lined dragon to me (Diporiphora bilineata)
Amazing photos I can't choose a favorite, they are all so good
Great photos,thanks.i would love to get up there for a look one day.
