Big bloke

I was pretty stoked to see this fella, I was driving past and spotted the familiar shape in the shade of a bush. I went back and said hello and got a few pics. As usual the photos don't do it justice, it really was a striking looking animal with quite clean and intense colouring.

Nice one!! are they pretty laid back when approached for a photo? I recently photographed V. panoptes and followed it for maybe 100m. It was aware of me but continued to forage.

I love being able to observe natural behaviour in reptiles unfortunately it can prove quite difficult.

He was a bit nervous of what my plans were at first when I pulled the ute up and got out but settled down while I took the pics and slowly wandered off. If I had more time I could have got some better ones but I was happy just sitting there with it for a bit

I hate having to name each thread so will put some more photos in this one...





Few trailcam pics- I have some better photos off it, but thought this big fella scaring the feathers out of the emu was a classic-

Nice work Desert Dweller, ;D

Have always been a fan of the panoptes........ Did your ferrets and the panoptes manage to cross paths?  ;D

Its unfortunate that so many die after falling down bore holes and wind mills, I've spent many hours fishing for panoptes in the Northern Goldfields and its a great feeling when they warm up and wander off after some sun :)

Keep at it Desert Dweller!
