The iconic images of Sydney are hard to overcome, so some are shared here along with some less iconic, and some wildlife images. The Australian water dragon was fun to watch.
Australian water dragons have long powerful limbs and claws for climbing, a long muscular tail for swimming, and prominent crests at the base of the head. These spikes continue down the spine, getting smaller as they reach the base of the tail.
Including their tails, which comprise about two-thirds of their total length, adult males can grow to over 3 feet long and weigh around 3 lb. They live on fruit, insects and small mammals throughout most of Eastern Australia.
