A good record from the burnt rocky landscape along the square rock trail. Did you see other reptile species here?

G'day Will, we also saw a little dragon (Rankinia I think), another saxatilis and lots of skinks (Pseudemoia and maybe some Lampropholis. I'll put the dragon and the other saxatilis on CNM - didn't get photos of the others. Also another member of the group saw what she thought was a Cunningham's skink within about 500 m from the carpark. Much of the area around the Square Rock Trail was burnt in a low-intensity hazard reduction burn in April 2019, which probably moderated the severity of the Orroral fire in this area.
