Author's notes

Beautiful specimen seen soaking up the sun on the Mount Ainslie walking trail. I believe that it is Varanus rosenbergi based on previous sightings in the area.

Thanks for your great record. These photos are very helpful in building up a pattern of use in the A-M reserve by this rare goanna.
