Author's notes

This lizard was about 150mm long. I found it when it stuck its head out of the watering can spout! The photo shows the lizard at the bottom of the watering can. It was quite placid in nature (although could have been in shock from nearly being drowned!)

It is a juvenile which are usually spotted like this but disappear as they become adults.
