Coolatai (population nearly 30), and the 100-odd residents on surrounding properties that make up our community, is a potpourri of personalities and talents. We have all sorts of weird and wonderful characters and we even have a lizard freak.
Alexander Dudley is our resident herpetologist and poet. As well as being a wealth of knowledge on our reptilian friends and an astute observer of Coolatai life, he is also a pretty decent photographer.
Alex has kindly shared the following photos with us – all creatures with which I share Rocky Springs.
Green Treesnake (Dendrelaphis punctulatus)
Box-patterned gecko (Lucasium steindachneri)
Lace Monitor (Varanus varius)
Yellow-faced Whipsnake (Demansia psammophis)
Eric, an undescribed member of the Egernia cunninghami
complex locally known as “Scaleyback”
Tree-base Litter Skink (Lygisaurus foliorum)
