I’ve never seen this before and probably never will again. A clutch of baby waterdragons emerging out of gravel on my driveway. This is a close-up of one of them and the next photo shows a group of 4. There was 9 all together after we dug down and found them all and the egg shells. We were able to release them into our nearby rocky creek, which made an all round interesting experience for us all.

    re meal …We have a few Goannas here off and on [ and pythons…], I was following one around the yard [it’s a real messy bushy one with a gully and dam although only 1 acre ] and I frightened a huge water dragon ,he ran as they do, right into the jaws of the goanna. I had my macro lens on the camera so I missed a good shot, not that is was very nice! seen goannas eating tree snakes here too and snakes eating frogs! goes round and around;-)))

  • Sure does Virginia! Quite a story lol, thanks for sharing it! :O)
