Wildlife Wednesday - babies?

Egg laying, January 2014
Back in January, I had a surreal experience in seeing a water dragon laying eggs. You can see the post here and I popped the photo on here - such a wonder!

The other day I was around the same area (walking down the track to the beach) when I came across these two little guys.

They were maybe 6 cm long (about 1/3 of the adult female). Not exactly where the eggs were laid, but close by.

It was an exciting moment to see the young after seeing eggs being laid. I know the chances of them being hatched from the eggs I watched being laid, are slim, but still, life cycles are wonderful.

I loved the guy who posed for me. He was fearless - maybe it's a she :)

More photos than words today - hope you don't mind!
