How sad, I seem to have an affinity with Squirrels!
"Flat out like a lizard drinking" is an old Aussie slang expression.
Now I know it's true. Our resident Eastern Blue Tongue lizard, drinking from the saucer beneath the pot plant.
It's hard to imagine having to worry about what spiders going to bite you while weeding! In my part of London you would be lucky to spot anything other than foxes or rats. Both run as soon as you spot each other.
Morning visitor to the crepe myrtle next to balcony.
I think it may be a Western Rosella. Were you in the South West?
Of course the most dangerous in Australia are the crabs.
Look out mate, 'es ga a knife!
Never a shortage of these characters in our neck of the woods -

This stuff makes me want to move to Ireland or something

Here in Britain there have been mysterious big cat sightings all over the country for decades. I took this one last year - WTH is that in the dead ground behind the tree?!
Oh, it was you all the time:
Same tree as before. This is about as big as our afternoon visitors actually get in this bit of rural England. Muntjac are pretty casual about humans. They're a non-native species that are reaching pest proportions.
Almost a repeat of my first post. Noticed this visitor under the big planter pot. Not sure if it's the same one or another intruder. No wonder we don't have a snail/slug problem .
About two house bricks+ long and quite fat. Maybe a lady about to give birth .
Blue tongues are great garden pets. We have a nice 60cm friend in our garden.
