Parsley Bay: Eastern Water Dragon



Lots of the very live Eastern Water Dragons sunning themselves on the rocks, but only one sand crab!

The Eastern Water Dragon ((Intellagama lesueurii) is Australia's largest dragon lizard. They are able to swim totally submerged, and rest on the bottom of shallow creeks or lakes for up to 90 minutes to avoid detection.

They love to bask on rocks.

  1. Quite a critter, and well adapted to its surroundings.
