A pair of large Monitor lizards approx. 1.5m in size have lived on my family property for the last 15 years. Both seem to have their own massive Iron bark tree 250m apart and each year for a couple of weeks can be seen wandering between the two trees for what can be assumed are conjugal visits.

The last 2 years however the Goanna's have been absent. I hope if they have passed it was from old age and not outside influences, and look forward to seeing their offspring in the years to come. In the meantime I have completed this drawing in memory of these ancient animals.
