Black-headed Python (Aspidites melanocephalus)

First one I've ever seen in the wild, and now finally checked off my list. Extremely shiny heads, I don't know how people get good shots of them, but I did my best haha.

Northern blue-tongued skink (Tiliqua scincoides intermedia) have been hit extremely hard since the arrival of Cane Toads into the Top End, and are rarely seen in urban areas anymore. I'm sure cats, dogs and habitat destruction don't help either.

This is the first one I've seen in 3 years, and the second one in maybe 20 years.

Seemed like a big and healthy individual, especially for one living in an area absolutely chock a block full of Carpet Pythons, cats, dogs and the occasional dingoe, in an island of green near the swankier (I use the term loosely) suburbs of Darwin.

A small Burton's legless lizard (Lialis burtonis) I found crossing the road while out doing work in the Katherine region.

Not exactly the most interesting photo, but I've never really photographed these little guys before, so while it won't win any awards it's a first for me !
