The Sand lizard or Gould’s Monitor is an expert at blending in with the local scenery.

It helps in catching insects, birds, other lizards and mice.

The monitor is found widely through the Outback and can grow up to about 1.5 metres or about four and a half feet and weigh about 6 kilos.

They are enthusiastic burrowers for food, laying eggs and shelter.
