    In addition to Matt's post(s) here are some pictures that I got on this trip. I can't be bothered re-counting the number species of reptiles we found, but excluding all the various garden skinks, I think there was around 35-36? Majority of them being new to us, Matt can confirm that if he can be bothered using his brain.

    I'll start with the snakes and geckos found, only 1 snake got away without it's photo taken, which was a Western Brown.

    Mulga - P. australis

    Great photos, I love the geckoes. Must have been hundreds of frogs around with all that water.

    Holy crap, all new? So there was old species ontop of that that we found? Such as the lacie, blueys etc?

    I just realised I forgot the frogs and turtle pics.. Oh well you'll be putting them up will you?

    Yeah I think about 43 species all up??? Not including all the garden skinks.

    Ive still got snakes, frogs and turtles to put up but I have no ID's on any of the frogs.
