Note: All of the following pictures were taken inside through glass.

Australia has many interesting reptiles - below are three pictures we took.  Unfortunately none of our snake pictures from  Healesville Sanctuary were in focus well enough to save.

These "thorny devils" (that's really their name) were photographed at Alice Springs Desert Park.  We saw two of them in the wild, not together as in this photo.


Large monitor lizard at Cleland Wildlife Park, Adelaide.
