Queensland Trip - Day 1
18 April 2012
Although my primary purpose heading north was to hunt for dragonflies
this first day proved a boon for reptiles and amphibians.
Firstly, at Sawn Rocks (Mt Kaputar National Park)
I encountered a Burton's Legless Lizard Lialis burtonis on the track, my first legless lizard.
At first, from a distance, I thought it was a snake but it looked very strange when I got close.
Once again I also saw several frogs on the roads as I was travelling in the evening.
The first time (last year) I experienced this
I was quite amazed, but it seems to be common in the sub-tropics.
I got help identifying the frogs from the helpful people at frogs.org.au.
