This little Lace Monitor (actually about 40cm long) lived underneath a concrete slab and he’d come out in the mornings to enjoy the sun. He was accommodating enough to let me take these photos before he ran back under his concrete slab. Lace monitors are the second largest monitor in Australia and grow to as long as 2.1m. Enjoy.
And the girl below was 7ft long, I found her lying beside the track enjoying the morning sun. Her scales reflected with a beautiful iridescence. She is an Amethistina Scrub Python (Morelia Amethistina) and that shine is obviously where the name comes from. She was fairly relaxed and didn’t even mind being handled for a bit.
