This dragon lives in the Brisbane City Botanic Garden. It's fairly big and heavy. It must find plenty to eat.

Wow, you spot that in your garden. I would love to visit Brisbane again. I heard that there is a birding place called Rott Weiler or something?

Dazman, this is not a zoo. It is a public park/garden. The Eastern Water Dragon is indigenous to the area. I've seen them here (the Brisbane City Botanic Gardens), in the Mt Coot-tha Botanic Gardens and in the creek near my house (not for swimming - for stormwater runoff). For a picture of a dragon at the last mentioned site, see:

Sorry, mate, I don't know how to put this gently... but if a water dragon beauty contest was held tomorrow, the dragons up here would win, hands down.
