L – Lizards and Leschenaultia

While on tour on Fraser Island, we spotted a lace monitor near the area where we were eating our midday meal. These reptiles are also called goannas.


Often on the road while travelling around Australia you will see these little blue tongue lizards. They are slow moving and can be run over quite easily.

Leschenaultia species

Western Australia is well known for its flowering plants. This is a small ground plant called Leschenaultia. I have also grown this at my place which has very sandy soil.
