Australia is known around the world for its lizard diversity and I frequently encounter some when out in the bush, although mostly these are small skinks scurrying away in the undergrowth. We also have a lot of interesting snakes, although these are less often encountered and are generally more flighty anyway. The snake species in Victoria are typically not aggressive and half the time will sit there hoping you don't see them or, if they see you early enough, flee before you even spot them. In most of my travels I encounter few turtles and no crocodiles (in southern Australia), which is why there are few of these on my site. old reptiles and amphibians page.
