Introducing Boss Hogg.  This guy is a whopping 4.8m long.  He was happily living in the Cairns region until he ate a $10,00 prize bull.  The local farmer wasn't too impressed

There was a multitude of lizards running free around the park.  This one let us get close enough for a picture.  Also note the *no swimming* sign in the background.  We laughed and wondered what idiot made that sign necessary.

This case was used to smuggle a large number of birds into the country.  It makes me sad that some people have so little regard for animals.

    Lovely pics (I hear u on the face pulling – ours now include a teen body fleeing the photo, so it doesn’t improve). I have to tell you that my profile photo was taken there about a hundred years ago. So I was keen to see what you had to say…
