This is one of the goannas that wanders through our house yard each day. One of the good things about having them around is they’re territorial & tend to keep the snakes away! They’re also quite fascinating to watch!

Yes it really is a camel! Our neighbours purchased several camels about 10 years ago to try & control the prickly acacia (an invasive weed). They’re in a huge paddock & you don’t often see them so I was pleased I had my camera with me today!
