Day 1 Day 2 Day 3 Day 4 Day 5 Day 6 Day 7 Day 8 Day 9 Day 10 Day 11

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.
