A large dragon with powerful limbs that will take to the water if disturbed. Traveling fast enough to walk on water for short distances. The sole member of the genus found in Australia (another is found in South-East Asia). Males can be brightly colored in breeding season.
Found near margins of waterways in Eastern Australia (from Northern Queensland down to Victoria).
Found this juvenile dragon on a rock in the river. It was a very cold day and he wasnt moving around much.
