Native Animals

The Eastern Water Dragon is a lizard that feeds on invertebrates, reptiles, frogs and fruit.

This lizard is found around creeks, watercourses and backyard ponds and is more often heard than seen plopping into water from its basking position.

Don’t approach water dragons as they have sharp claws and can deliver a serious bite.
