Two male Gippsland Water Dragons fighting for supremacy. The older one showed evidence of past battles - he had lost one eye and the end of his tail (which was growing again).

Very cool image, it's like a still from the 1959 movie "Journey To The Center Of The Earth".

Thanks! I also have video, which I'll edit together to feature the movement - they spent a lot of time staring at each other.

Thank you! It would have been more awesome except for the fact that they were fighting on a road (inside the Botanic Gardens, so not much risk of being run over).

Ah yes, the battle scene which replaced the fight between the Icthyosaur and Pleisiosaur.

Most of them grew feathers and flew away! Yes, the spines add to the look.

Neat scene that most of us will never see in person.

Nice detail.

They almost look like they're getting intimate.
