AUSTRALIAN REPTILE PHOTOS, DISTRIBUTION MAPS AND INFORMATION
This site covers Snakes and Lizards, Crocodiles and Turtles, including Colubrid snakes, Pythons, Elapids (called Cobras or Coral Snakes in some countries), Sea Snakes, File Snakes, Blind (or Worm) Snakes, Sea Turtles, Freshwater Turtles (or Tortoises) Dragon Lizards (Agamas), Gecko's, Legless Lizards, Monitor Lizards (often called Goanna's in Australia), Skinks and Crocodilia.
Note that the Gippsland Water Dragon Intellagama (was Physignathus) lesueurii howitti is found in the southern part of the range and lacks the distinct eye stripe, although they may have a black stripe behind their ear.
The two sub-species cross readily in captivity so should not be kept together. Besides being illegal to cross sub-species in some states, crosses may be hard to classify when juveniles, and adult crosses are not as colorful as either species. Apparently intergrades do occur in NSW
