This is Lizzie, the largest, (and we presume, female) of our resident wild colony of bearded dragons. The colony is at Grenfell, on the south west slopes of NSW. Yesterday was the first time we have seen them out this Spring. Now we have to be careful not to tread on them or mow them, or run over them! They can be so still you just don’t see them until you are about to stumble over them. They have no fear of us, and seem to like our company. Tiger, our cat, is their protector and proud ‘uncle’ to their young ones when they arrive.
Lizzie appears to be in prime breeding condition – just look how plump and well-fed she is! She will now perch herself on any high vantage point she can to advertise for suiters – and there will be plenty come to visit, too! LOL
