Fancy fellow!

Vaughan had already missed out on catching two lizards - the super-quick goanna near Eulo and a faster than expected bearded dragon on Hungerford Road

He was therefore very keen to catch this fellow - and we all admired the gorgeous captive.  From a distance, I had assumed he was a small bearded dragon and seemingly Vaughan thought it might be a very young goanna. We later spoke to a ranger, who confirmed the lizard was a central netted dragon, which had been one of our thoughts after closer examination, though the orange head tricked us!  (The males develop the orange colouration during their breeding season).
