Thank Neil, I seem to have a large population of them in my back garden, if you go out at night you see lots of eyes starring back at you. It is tricky to get them out of their hole to photograph them however it can be achieved with practice and patients, many fun hours spent with these guys :)

Nasty!!!! I'm well acquainted with its Sydney cousin. I've never seen one with red legs, although I generally don't get that close. Well spotted, Jono.
