back to nature
When we arrived at the ranch on Monday we were greeted by the sight of a 'deceased' lizard (young goanna, small dragon ... not sure exactly) all sad and limp in the kitchen sink ... we were kind of sad - what a lonesome place to have ended his/her days ...
After about 10 minutes of feigning death, the lizard dropped the pretense and decided to make eye contact with us - a big relief to know it was alive, but it made the prospect of repatriating to the wild a bit less simple.
Quick saucepan ride out to the dam and it was all good ... happy lizard, happy us ... and the house is just a little less like a reptile enclosure now - so that's good too!
