Around when Dinosaurs walked the Earth


On this earth for almost 4 million years...we are looking at a relic of the Dinosaurs.

The Kimodo Dragon is one of the largest living lizards of today and a bit of trivia tells us that their best defense is a virulent bacteria present in their mouths causes an anitibiotic resistant sepsis when bitten and the victim usually dies of shock.

Not your garden variety yard lizard.

Sounds like a member of the Australian Liberal party.

If I saw this lizard in my garden, I'd die of shock without being bitten!
Excellent pictures :)

Dawn Treader...I like to take photos of strange creatures...once taken, they can be enlarged and we can get closer to them than we ever could in real life!
