At the orientation, we had a gentleman visit who brought along some little friends – 3 lizards and 2 spiders, for us to experience the local fauna with less fear.    We got to handle the lizards and Leon took a couple of pictures of me with them.  My favourite was the blue tongue lizard that looks like a short snake with legs.  This guy, that I am holding, was a lot spinier.

Do you suppose he had a name?
I think he was getting tired of being handled.
