Lace Monitor or Goanna (Varanus varius) large male 2 metres will eat anything, climbs the highest trees to raid bird nests, will dig out rabbit burrows to eat the whole family in one go. Eats snakes, chooks and any dead carcass. Its main weapon is its tail- I was 'whipped' once, it was very painful and left a mark and deep bruising on my hand. Lace Monitor or goanna
Female Goanna - not being aggressive- just yawning! I had more trust in her I could lay down on my veranda and take this photo from about 8 inches away. female goanna
Mountain Dragon (Rankinia diemensis) , Common Small Dragon Lizard 20 centimetres long.

Gippsland Water Dragon (Physignathus lesueurii howittii) , up to one metre long, always close to water as it is semi- aquatic. Difficult to see as they stay motionless on logs and will drop inter the water at slightest disturbance
Murray Turtle Family Group Kiah. (Emydura macquarii ) The normal turtle for the South Coast is the Eastern Long Neck Turtle. How do we have the Murray Turtle here? I believe it is because my property is at the start of The Bundian Way-The Aboriginal Path up to the Bogong Plains. My theory is that they would have carried live turtles with them for food on the trek, on the way back they would have done the same thing except would have been the Murray Turtle. Any not eaten would have been released into their home swamp hence a displaced population of Murray Turtles. Murry turtle at Kiah, only population outside the Marrya region
