And the bush has friends to meet him, and their kindly voices greet him, In the murmur of the breezes and the river on its bars,
And he sees the vision splendid of the sunlit plains extended, And at night the wonderous glory of the everlasting stars.
Banjo Paterson (1889)

These guys, Western Bobtails (Tiliqua rugosa) are common in our local area and often visit our garden looking for snails, insects or fruit. These skinks are tough and usually hang on in many environmentally degraded areas.
They also come in darker colours, the colour is dependant on the rocks and soil of the area.
