Thanks Roy - it is important that we get a handle on the danger to this vulnerable goanna that sealed (and unsealed) roads pose.

Author's notes

Usually I wouldn't photograph roadkill but I've made an exception for this case. A relatively small individual it seemed from what was left. Just a few metres before the Brandy Flat car park.
