    Grampians Herping - SMALL BROWN SKINKS!!!!

    The Grampians are such an underrated place to herp. With close to every single species of temperate victorian skinks confined to the area, it is absolute paradise. I headed up to the area on the easter weekend for a camping trip with a mate, and when we arrived at the camping ground at Lake...

I was...

Unfortunately I could only get access to...
