Significant sighting

8 Jan 2016

Nobbi dragons were not thought to exist in the ACT until about 1989 when they were discovered. They may be genetically different to Nobbis elsewhere. A number of surveys were done in the early 1990s showing their distribution along the Murrumbidgee River but sighting since then have been rare. This is second known record the century. GeoffR
