    I've got a big lizard who lives around here and often does a patrol of the yard looking for food..

    He was here again today.... he's big and mean, they have no real enemies, so they are fearless...

    I stay safely behind the screen door when he turns up..:D

    Wow that's an impressive beast!
    I must admit I was thinking that a tele with a goanna-gnawed body might be an awesome instrument, and unique in the annals of relicing...!

    It's a monitor lizard. They can climb trees.

    I can hear his claws clicking on the back deck when he takes a look up here...

    one time I went to the screen door after hearing him and when I got to the door he had climbed up the screen door and was looking me in the eye.... his tail still dragging on the floor....:eek:

    then in one motion he turned and peeled off the door onto the floor, took a few steps over to the stairs stuck his legs out to the side and slid down the stairs on his guts until he got to the concrete.... :cool:

    just letting me know who's the boss around here...:lol:

    they can run up trees.... even a smooth bark gum tree is no problem for these claws....

    if you spook one out in open country it might see a vertical you and think it's the closest tree to escape up.....

    good eating, too..;)

    It's just a lizard.

    You want scary?

    These don't always rattle, so they can surprise you.

    If one gets in your house, it will usually hide under a bed.

    Of course the Australian's response is "that's not a lizard, THIS is a lizard ..."

    Big bonus points for getting the tele body in frame!

    The woman dragging the lizard out by the tail is the kind of woman you want to marry.

    The gal standing on the chair is for dating only.
