Hello everyone, here are some pics of some recent trips I've been on. In early September I went up to Northern Vic with a mate to find some Southern spiny-tailed geckos from a population on a granite hill. We found one individual without a tail. Nice.

Frustratingly we found an endangered legless lizard instead.

Leaving on a Saturday we stopped at Tooan state park and we saw (but failed miserably to photograph) painted dragons and a whole heap of small skinks (Morethia obscura and Crytoblepharus pannosus) ;(. For some reason every dinky cafe and milkbar in western Victoria seem to close around 2pm, so we had to drive all the way over the border in order to eat food. After giving up looking for Mallee tree dragons near Narracoorte we had arrived at our make-or-break destination somewhere in south-eastern SA. We found our target species just as we were about to call it quits, and I might've cried a little.

Fuelled by merely two up&gos' we found this funny looking dog on the side of the road in 32deg heat. Sand goanna (Varanus gouldii) by Nick Gale, on Flickr And we found some more baby beardies.
