A great new location for this rare goanna - well done! It is very useful to see the surrounding habitat that you have provided with your photographs - with photographs like these we are adding to our understanding of this important lizard's habitat requirements.

Thanks willO :) I’m happy how they’ve turned out considering I don’t have a rear camera on my phone so all these photos were selfie mode lol
