Rare Lizard seen in McLaren Vale - James' scoop find.
Amazingly these photos of this lizard in McLaren Vale have caused a stir.
I took them on Tuesday and posted them to Facebook. From the pictures I took I have been contacted by the SA museum who wants to find this specimen. They believe it might well be a Lace Monitor - "Bells Form" Varanus varius... Read more.
It seems to be a rare find and has been believed to be extinct in South Australia. The museum doesn't believe that there are any Lace Monitors in the Adelaide Hills, or specifically any "Bells Form Monitors" in SA.
I look forward to crossing paths with Mr Lizard again - and that is an exciting find indeed!
