BEST PHOTOS, 6th SET - THE TRACHYDOSAURUS HUNTER

We come to the Victoria border, from Pinnaroo, South Australia. Let's see if we can't find a Trachydosaurus Rugosus, common name - Shingleback. Should be one around here somewhere...

 

Hey, here's one now! Ain't she a beauty? She looks friendly.


 

We contemplate each other:
My thought: "How can I pick her up to get a photo?"
Her thought: "Let's see. If I unhinge my jaw all the way, I think I can get this big fella down."

 

Look at that BLUE TONGUE! That's must be a sign she wants to be friends. Some aboriginals call it a Blue-tongued Lizard.

 

I'll just trick her into biting my right hand while I grab her behind the neck with my left.

 

What a Ripp-ah! Let's see if I can get her to show you her tongue again!

 

She'd like nothing better than to get a good hold on my hand. I'll just put her down now.

 

Uh-oh. She's calling her mama. Let's go, Sharon...
