    Does anybody have, or have access to or even know the whereabouts of a photo of a Varanus tristis from the kimberley region? Photos of northern WA or Western NT animals would probably be helpful.

    If so, I'd like a look! i don't want to use it in any publication or anything like that, i'd just like a look. Post it on here if you like. If you've encountered them on your travels and have taken a picture, I'd like to see it. If you've got animals that have "originated" from that region, a pic of them would be good as well!


    All the best,

    -H

    If you could email that to me, it would be grand!
