This is our resident lizard. We call him Ralf and hand feeds on occasions, if it suits him.
Suns himself every morning on the rock wall bordering the front lawn.
He steals the odd chook egg and make the small birds agitated (for good reason) and the little he takes we can afford. He doesn’t seem at all interested in the bee hive. Has swaggered past it but doesn’t, even flick a tongue at the hive. Does an excellent job of keeping away snakes and just a part of the ecology.
He is one of three lizard types we have. The Bobtail which isn’t seen much since the arrival of the Skinks about 5 years ago. These Skinks grow to about 400 mm long (1 1/2 feet) and are very aggressive and rapidly reproduce so they are discouraged.
