Mmmm ... maybe I can slip in under the gate!

Mmmm ... maybe I can slip in under the gate!

The lace monitor lizard looked very carefully for a spot under the gate first! Their diet typically consists of insects, reptiles, small mammals, birds and birds' eggs.

Eek hope your eggs where ok! On our tv news today it says Queensland has masses of Kangaroos coming in from the bush because of the drought have there been more around your home?

Hi Neellan - around here the wallabies move up into the surrounding hills when it becomes very dry ... I think it's probably cooler up there (the hills are rather high up) and more grass would survive. I still see a couple of mums and their joeys but definitely not in the numbers I see during autumn and winter.

ah after seeing the report I imagined your lovely garden getting overrun with ravenous kangas I'm relieved you and your garden are ok :o))

LOL Neellan ... no there's been no marauding wallabies. There's been fewer than usual as I mentioned ... but we've started to get a few showers of rain so the grass is starting to revive a bit and I expect there'll be a few more wallabies coming down from the hills soon.
