Suspicious Lizard is Suspicious. Images of Canberra

suspicious lizard

Seen at, you guessed it, the Pinnacle. Seems to be a lot of these about at the moment, (more images available.)

Also saw a brown snake there the other day. I was too busy running away to get a photo, though my old blind dog trod on it and got away with it!

Does it look suspiciously like that that little girl in the photo going round: smirking while the house goes up in fire in the background?

Yes the reptiles are out and about, we saw a Red Belly & a Brown sunning themselves in different locations on the Bobyan Road yesterday. Both of them at least a metre long as I had to cross the line to drive around them.

Pft. It’s much better looking and has infinitely more ethics.

I’m sick of you cyber-bullies.

One man’s cyber bully is another’s honest exchange of views.

No it’s the reptile of the press who dishonestly entered a private luncheon and broke Chatham House rules to create a phony scandal. It is also the scum on the Net who are trying to close down a radio station because they don’t like hearing views which are not stridently left wing.

What radio station are the ‘left wing scum’ trying to close down?

Excellent photo! Love the colour and sharpness of the image as well.

Aren’t you the guy who runs a stridently right-wing blog with the comments feature disabled?

The arrangement of the shot does offer a lot of future photoshop potential.

I think it’s a campaign manager. That’s why there are a lot of them around right now.

Thanks for the kind comments. :-)

But please, no more insults! Equatling a lovely bearded dragon with that XXXX xxxxx x x xxX XXXXX xxxx [deleted on legal advice] Jones is a gross insult to lizards everywhere.

Such an awesome looking creature and to think that reptiles came into existence some 300 million years ago and still going strong!

Brown snake on the path up Mt Ainslie yesterday … I’ve always understood them to be shy – but this one slithered to just off the path and wouldn’t leave.

For some reason, the “experts” (the ones we hear from anyway) want to paint a picture of scared, retiring brown snakes. They’re neither. They’re territorial, pugnacious and if you don’t see them, depend on it they’ve seen you. And they’ll just sit there until they reckon you’re too close, and then you’ll get bitten.

I’ve seen blacks and red-belly blacks beating a hasty retreat. I’ve only ever seen browns coiled looking at me, coming at me, or stretched out in the sun ignoring me. Make sure you see them first is all.

Like most animals, leave them alone if you can. Lizards, roos, sheep, etc. (Love this town)

Great pic.

Did you have a picasa or similar photo stream with the others? That one looks great with the brilliant blue hue of the sky behind it. Did you touch it up at all?

I 100% agree with EvanJames, red bellies are the cowards of elipdaes. Every brown snake of adult size has always held its ground. Those quivering ripples of muscle around the lips tasting the air still haunt me. Pure and true evil.
I like bearded dragons as much as clams though,

Sounds like you were half way through a sentence and were attacked by a giant clam. You clammed up.
