Hah! That is so funny! But I think if I saw that outside my door I would freak out.
Oh dont worry I do too! I am glad there is glass between him and me.
Wow, must have been a suprising sight.The are no native Iguanas in Australia - it looks like a Lace monitor, a type of goanna.
George - you are right - will have to go and amend that.
He looks really curious to know what's going on inside! - are they dangerous?
So lucky the door was shut....
For sure, I am paranoid about keeping the doors shut, mostly the screen doors though....
It is always such fun when nature surprises us.
It is isnt it Joan.
I agree with George. It's a lace monitor.
Will go and correct that.
It would scare the hell out of me! Maybe it was just looking for food...
Sami, I dont know what it was looking for - our tinted windows have a reflection and I wonder if he saw that?
A visiting reptile....O, my. He/she looks like a friend in need. L
Dixie, I am just glad he didnt stick around for too long.
How wonderful! I wonder if he/she was doing what the birds do here..."attacking" the rival reflected in the window. You don't feed them, do you?
Nanette, yes I think it might be the reflection. No we dont feed wildlife.
Oh gosh! If I saw that at the door I would be petrified ! And I think I have trouble with our frogs and toads !!
Oh Jane, they mostly just shy away from humans I have no idea what made this one come so close - he went off in a hurry as soon as my hubby started to open the door. (to get a better photo lol!)
Wow, what a handsome lizard! I think I would have been so surprised. And yes, I would have yelled out to hubby! :)
Not what you expect when you hear a knock is it?
He really looks like he is very interested in coming inside. Looking behind him/her I like what you did as a water absorbing site for the rain gutter down pipe. Aloha
Stellamarina,he does doesnt he? That works well - I much prefer to have the water soak into the ground than flow down the road.
"Who can it be knocking at my door? Who can it be now, who can it be now????"It really looks like he/she is checking their reflection in the glass door.....I keep my front door open during the day, so I would have freaked out to find that unwelcome visitor in my home...yikes!!!
Virginia,we keep the screen doors closed at least! Keeps the mozzies out too!
I love interacting with all my readers, thank you for your comments. Have a great day!
