Goanna Diggings

I've just got back from a few wonderful days exploring some wilderness in Western Australia's south-west, namely the Stirling Ranges, Porongurups and coastline near Albany. There were so many wonderful wildlife events that I experienced but one truly stood out above the rest.

The Rosenberg's Goanna (Varanus rosenbergi) is a formidable predator which is common among open woodlands and heathlands of the south-west. I always find it incredibly exciting to see a monitor lizard but never has one allowed me into it's personal space like this one did.

Check out the video and see if it puts a tingle down your spine too!
