Baby Water Dragon (Physignathus lesueurii lesueurii) on King Fern (Angiopteris evecta) by 


Even though I have a very small back yard it’s “Critter” friendly! We have Resident Tree and Marsh frogs, Pink & Blue tongue Lizards and visitors such as Green Tree Snakes and “Land Mullets”. Over the past 10 years the Water Dragons have become relaxed enough to start breeding. We get about two batches each summer and watch the head boobing and arm throwing of young adult males trying to impress the girls. Just spotted this 2 month old baby dragon sleeping (?) on a Giant Fern (Angiopteris evecta) frond a couple of minutes ago. Too cute not to take his photo!!
