Don’t like rockeries because they can harbor snakes and snakes here is a bad thing, but, if there are lizards and skinks around, thats a good sign because the snakes have not eaten them. This guy is about 20cm long and as thick as a pencil. He is called The Robust Ctenotus, a common skink in these parts.
Had a family of plovers move into the front yard. Mum, Dad and 4 kids. So i go out to see if i can get a photo of the babies and the parents lost their shit. But after I mowed half the front yard, they decided it was time to move house because the neighbors are too noisy LOL.
This guy has taken to visiting us every day. 6am this morning he was in the same place and sang a nice song. If you know how loud a kookaburras call is, and how quiet our place is, you would know there is just no sleeping in after that LOL
Never had time to grab a real camera, these were quick snapes on my phone so you may have to scan in to see things better. But looks to me like an eastern brown snake roaming around my place. Just what i need LOL
