A Visitor

On Friday evening we were headed back into town when I noticed this up our driveway.

He/she was very patient while we stopped the car to get out for a closer look.

It is quite rare that we see lizards this big around our place, so was quite a treat to see so close up.

Aaahh Janice, he is just divine! He's an eastern Bearded Dragon. I have a female, her name is Pepsi. They don't live here in the city but out of town a little way they are everywhere. Especially at a friends property. You can find heaps of babies there at the moment as it's egg hatching time!!! Although I've never seen one sitting on a pine tree like yours is!! lol

OMG! Janice, it looks like a little komodo dragon... You brave girl, I would have stayed in the car and raced home to lock myself in the house.... LOL!

He looks a bit like a bearded dragon...my son has one that he loves very much. He's very cute!!

He certainly chose an interesting place to bask in the sun! I could think of more comfortable places... at least he wasn't on the road.
