Fulham Streamside Reserve: Lex and the lizard

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

 

Without any fuss or hesitation, Lex scooped up this rather large Sleepy Lizard (who was, we presumed, female, due to the two lizards pursuing her – no doubt with amorous intent) for a pat. She’s braver than I am…yes, I know they’re not at all frightening, or would do more than give you a clamp-like bite, but I have never been comfortable handling reptiles.

  1. Love that photo Melanie! Have always picked up sleepys, don’t know if they enjoy it as much as me though! When we were kids, Mum said we used to dress them in dolls clothes and carry them around – maybe this is what poor kids do out in the back blocks! We would have been about four years old. Thank goodness Mum was not one of those cotton wool Mums you hear about.
