Look What I Found at the Garden Centre!!


Browsing at the Garden Centre recently ( at the Pick'n'Pay Aspley for you locals) I saw this wonderful little chap!! Isn't he beautiful??

He was happily wandering around amongst the potted trees, very fat as you can see, and obviously keeping all the insect pests away from the plants. The Garden Centre love
him being there!







Just look at that magnificent tail!!
He isn't a frilly lizard, nor a bearded dragon, some kind of water dragon we think.



This picture gives a better idea of his size - those are fruit trees to his left, about four feet high - so he is quite big. A little living dinosaur - isn't he fantastic??

I'm so glad I have adopted the habit of taking my camera everywhere with me!!

Hi Yvette, your gardening friend is a magnificent Eastern Water Dragon. Australia Zoo has lots of these guys wandering about. He is probably helping in the garden centre by eating snails & bugs, Cheers, Shan

Ewwwwwww! We have a bearded dragon and this one reminds me of him except of course for the lack of the beard! I just can't get all cozy about lizards; including my own! LOL!
