Australian Water Dragon
Physignathus lesueurii

This lizard is a large creature at ~100 cm for males and ~66 cm for females. They live in damp areas near running water along the east coast of Australia, even in urban areas of the big eastern cities. Along with a South-East Asian relative, they make up the genus Physignathus.
