Very small, fast dragon with 'painted' markings. Varies in size between 5cm and 7cm long (not including the extremely long tail).
Small sandy area on the bank of the Upper Noosa River.
My husband and I were kayaking on the river and got out to have a look around a small sandy beach. We found these tiny lizards there... they were so small we thought they were hatchlings, but apparently these are the size of adults! We thought there were only two but they kept darting around, and looking at the pictures now I'm not convinced that there weren't three. Shots 1&3 are definitely different specimens, but I'm not sure about Shot 2 - it could be the same as the specimen in Shot 1, or a different one altogether.
