10 17-12-2018 Wilkerson Rd West Toodyay Bobtails At least 8-10. They’re here every day and have been for years. There are at least 2 new juveniles this season. Most of them have a few ticks but still look healthy. Last year I took a couple to Kanyana with the ‘flu’ like symptoms but after treatment I brought them home, as well as some extras which needed rehoming. They’re mostly quite habituated to me and climb over my feet or try to climb up my leg. A bit scratchy!

13 02-12-2018 Wilkerson rd west Toodyay Monitor, Black-tailed Inside the cupboard under my laundry sink! Don�t know how he got inside, may have been there for a while. After about an hour he made his way to the back door and stayed there while I slowly slid it open and he went quite calmly into the back yard. An interesting afternoon. I got a photo. He was about 60cm long and looked quite mature.
