    My biggest surprise of the trip was how stoked I was to spot the pygmy goanna and the gecko and how blase i was about the snakes. I may have to so some gecko herping up here soon.

    I forgot to take your mobile number :(
    2 monitors, I did not even know the big one was a perentie, are they found near Newman?
    I am off my head, the worst part was that Coral bay was packed so we did not even get to stay there, we should have stayed out east for a few days more.

    yea mate you do get perenties around newman but they are far more prolific around coral bay and up towards exmouth.
    I camped just north of Coral bay as I know a few campsites that many of the tourists dont.
