    Yeah, no. Pass. We don't even really have salamanders (or very few) around here.

    After living in NZ I became really interested in how different environments produce different animals to occupy specific niches in a given ecosystem. We don't have large lizards here where I live, but we have Fisher Cats that kinda occupy the same niche as your Ozzie lizards do. They also don't have natural predators, are similarly fearless, and are roughly the same size. These things are little badasses.

    Nope. The real deal. The good news is most of them will eat about anythingo_O. And a pretty wide range with many variations...yippee.

    The tail looks meaty.
    I'd scrag it and grill it up.

    The black dog is the real deal...keeps the prey pinned and stretched out so the others can do their work on the vulnerable places. But, human intervention at the end.

    Nothing to worry about, it's just the store's security monitor.

    Those things usually only get that large when they suffer from Pb (lead) deficiency. Usually rectified by the application of about 8 grams of lead, around 9 millimeters in diameter, applied at a velocity of about 1,200 feet per second. Liberally apply additional doses if the first proves to be ineffective.

    I typically have 12 to 15 fence lizards hanging around my place. I love them and have names for each of them. This is Sid, king of the back wall.
