Having bushland opposite me, I can't be surprised when little visitors drop in. Today this lizard decided to come into my patio. I spotted him coming up the steps, otherwise I would have missed him. Yesterday, our neighbour came rushing in, letting us know there was a snake in the front garden. Thankfully he was able to catch and kill it as it was extremely venomous. With dogs and small children next door we couldn't be too careful. I don't mind lizards or goannas, but I am very wary of snakes, so much so that I won't go bushwalking in the summer because of them.
The last I saw of him he was headed for the back garden, no doubt I will see him again sometime
This goanna was hiding under a bush in the front garden, hubby got a fright when he put his hand on it while weeding, he was relocated back to the bush, in a bucket.
