Hi all,

I've posted these pics on another forum that I know some APS members frequent and moloch's awesome sequences above almost make me too embarassed to post them here too but what the hell, I thought I would anyway!

The pictures are in roughly chronological order, as we moved North through NSW (inland, but not further West than Coonamble, which was flooded at the time) and up into South Central Queensland. We got as far North as Carnarvon Gorge where we stayed very briefly and saw one stone gecko (woohoo!) before heading South again via the coastal route.....we saw nothing at all worth mentioning on the way home :(. The post is rather light on text but I'm more than happy to discuss any specific animals or locations if asked. Anyway....enjoy!

Pogona barbata



Hypsilurus spinipes



Varanus varius



Furina diadema



Lialis burtonis



Underwoodisaurus milii



Anomalopus leuckartii



Oedura robusta



Underwoodisaurs milii

Pogona barbata



Oedura monilis



Strophurus williamsi



Diplodactylus vittatus



Denisonia devisi



Strophurus taenicauda



Pygopus shraderi



Lerista emmotti



Strophurus williamsi (gravid)



Brachyurophis australis



Denisonia devisi - road accident or caudal luring accident?



same snake



Pseudechis australis



same snake



Lialis burtonis



same lizard



Lucasium steindachneri



Aspidites melanocephalus - this guy was really impressive, the biggest wild BHP I've seen at well over two metres long (I'd say around 8ft). He was much more impressive than my photos of him at any rate, I couldn't get him to sit still and the jet black of the head makes these guys hard to photograph in my opinion.



same snake



Paradelma orientalis



Brachyurophis australis



Diplodactylus vittatus



Underwoodisaurus milii



Suta suta



Strophurus taenicauda

Lerista emmotti? How far out did you go? Are you sure it's not Lerista punctatovittata? I'm pretty sure emmotti has front legs as well (although it's not immediately obvious from your pics).

Otherwise great pics. Looks like it was a very successful trip. There's a few species there that I haven't got around to finding yet!

Great pics, I would hazzard to guess the missing tail on the DeVis was an accident, car or predator... I don't believe they "lure" as such.
Barbata pics are fantastic.

I looked back again at these ... such nice shots. I really like the lighting on the the head of the Lace Monitor. Great photo!

Thanks for all the kind comments guys. I need to get a new flash gun (mine died on me some years ago), and then I'll be in business!

Hi Nephrurus,

You may be right about it being L. punctatovittata. Both species have front legs and so did this guy (and another I found), but emmotti has two toes on the forelimb and punctatovittata has only one. I foolishly didn't actually count toes but in other photos I have it looks as though the animals may have only had one toe on the forelimbs. The photos aren't conclusive but it looks as though you may have made a very good call! Next time I'll have to be more careful in my toe-counting!

cheers mate,

Tim
